The Graduate Research Fund (GRF) supports DePaul graduate students in their pursuit of research and scholarship. The program provides funding for the planning and implementation of research and scholarship, as well as the presentation of student's research outcomes at professional and academic conferences. Graduate students who seek a GRF award should read the application instructions and then complete and submit the online GRF application.
Faculty sponsors will also need to complete an online GRF sponsor endorsement. GRF applicants should direct their advisor to this page to access the online endorsement.
If you have any questions regarding the GRF application process, please contact Susan McMahon, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development.
