OSR Offers Support for Research and Travel

The Office of Student Research will be accepting Grants-In-Aid of Scholarship and Research (GIASR) applicants, as well as Conference Travel Scholarship applications, for spring 2019.

All disciplines are invited to participate. The purpose of the GIASR is to promote a culture of research and scholarship at Truman while providing flexibility to accommodate different research styles and requirements. Projects supported by this program should involve original ideas but may encompass a variety of activities including obtaining preliminary data or information, exploring new topics and continuing ongoing projects.

To be eligible for funding, students must be a currently enrolled, full-time as a Truman undergraduate or graduate student. Students must also have completed or be currently involved in a faculty-mentored research experience and plan on presenting at the conference.

GIASR applications may request up to $750 and can cover student stipends as well as supplies and travel to conduct the research. The travel scholarship will cover up to $500 of conference registration, lodging and travel expenses. Complete guidelines can be found at the Office of Student Research website.
All students who wish to be considered for spring 2019 funding should submit applications online by 11:59 p.m. Nov. 27.
Any questions about the Office of Student Research programs can be directed to osr@truman.edu.
