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:
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
Dr. Susan D. McMahon, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs.
MUSE is a mentorship program designed to support both research learning opportunities for undergraduate students and original graduate student research, including thesis work. With a MUSE grant, CSH undergraduate students conduct research with the guidance of a Master's level CSH student or Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) student mentor. The mentor and mentee receive $750 each to collaborate on a project of their choosing beginning in Spring quarter and lasting up to one year, while gaining experience presenting their work to the scientific community. MUSE partners are expected to participate in the
STEM Undergraduate Research Showcase in the Fall and are encouraged to further present or publish their work, including in the College's undergraduate research journal,
DePaul Discoveries. MUSE especially aims to facilitate undergraduate support for students from diverse, underrepresented groups.
The application deadline is
March 1. Students must have a corresponding research partner and faculty sponsor prior to applying. Partners do not have to be from the same department, and inter-disciplinary collaboration is encouraged. Students who do not have a partner should reach out to
CSHResearch@depaul.edu for matching support immediately and well before the application deadline. Please note that a match is not guaranteed, and students are encouraged to seek their own partnerships by sharing their research interests with faculty and students for successful matching.
To submit, please complete the following steps. All materials must be received by the deadline to be considered:
Graduate students have many opportunities to pursue externally-funded scholarships that can be used to fund their academic work.
