Additional Funding during COVID-19

Book Fund

The Department has funds available for graduate students who need to purchase books and other media for their courses, research, and milestone completion (qualifying exams, prospectus, etc) during the COVID-19 crisis.  We ask that students first seek out the University Library’s online resources, and apply to purchase those materials that the University cannot provide.  Please let Amila Mevic know when you are ready to make a purchase, and she can look into purchasing options.

Graduate Student Research Bridge Grant

The Department has limited funds available for graduate students who encounter unexpected expenses during the course of their work. These funds are generally small, and are intended to cover truly unanticipated costs such as safe transportation to a research site, an upgraded software license, a flight change due to illness, family events, or world events, etc.  We have currently expanded the Bridge Grant to include expenses related to the transition to remote learning and teaching due to the COVID-19 crisis. Please complete this form to apply for a grant up to $500 to assist with unexpected costs related to continuing your work.

Minar Memorial Summer Awards

The Department is pleased to offer the Minar Memorial Summer Award again this year!  Complete the application.
