Graduate Student Council Research Grants


Grants from the Graduate Student Council Research Fund increase the marketability, competitiveness and opportunities of Ole Miss graduate students; increase the number of proposals from and awards for graduate students; and expand the ability of graduate students to conduct research and/or creative or innovation projects to a degree not possible with departmental funds alone.

The $1,000 competitive research grants, funded by the UM Graduate School and Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, support the research, study and creative scholarship of both masters and doctoral students.
