Student Research Grants Now Available

The Office of Student Research (OSR) is now accepting Grants-In-Aid-of-Scholarship and Research (GIASR) applications for research and creative activities to be conducted during the Fall 2012 semester.
The purpose of these grants is to promote a culture of research, scholarship and creative activity 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. The OSR anticipates awarding five to eight GIASR grants (up to $750 each) per semester depending on availability of funds.

Students must be current Truman undergraduates or graduate students and be mentored by a Truman faculty member. Grant applications may request up to $750 and can cover student stipends as well as supplies and travel to conduct the research. Complete guidelines can be found at the Office of Student Research website,

All students that wish to be considered for GIASR Fall 2012 funding should submit applications online at by 11:59 p.m. Aug. 30. Email any questions about the OSR programs to
