The Graduate Research Fund (GRF) supports DePaul College of Science and Health graduate students, providing funding for conducting research and presenting research at academic conferences. Graduate students who seek a GRF award should first read the application instructions and then submit the GRF application online by the deadlines that fall annually on:

  • October 1
  • February 1
  • May 15
If the deadline falls on a weekend, apply by the following business day.

Faculty mentors will also need to complete the online GRF sponsor endorsement by the corresponding deadline. GRF applicants should request their faculty mentor's endorsement at least two weeks prior to the deadline. Students should provide the title of their project, their student ID number, and their application to their faculty mentor in advance.

If you have any questions regarding the GRF application process, please contact CSHResearch@depaul.edu or Dr. Susan D. McMahon, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs.
