Research Western – Join Fund for Graduate Research
While graduate students present their research in numerous venues on and off campus, this fund was initiated to help support the creation of events (conferences, lectures) that bring external participants to share their research and interact with UWO grad students. Research Western, the Society of Graduate Students (SOGS), and the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (SGPS) have formed a partnership, annually contributing to $4000 each to a jointly-administered fund, designed to aid these events. The maximum amount that will be awarded to each successful application is $1,000.
Deadline: Applications accepted throughout the year.
