Support for Students’ Conduct of Research and Creative Activities

The purpose of the Dr. Billie Doris McAda Graduate Student Awards for Research and Creative Activities is to assist graduate students in conducting well-defined and purposeful scholarly activities, including research and creative endeavors that contribute to professional growth and enhance the graduate school experience at the University.  Activities must pertain to the graduate student’s discipline, or disciplines in the case of interdisciplinary work, and are to result in thesis research or a product that will be disseminated in a professional public venue (exhibition, publication, presentation, etc.). A graduate student applying for funding must indicate a graduate faculty mentor. The graduate faculty member must hold graduate faculty status.

As part of the Dr. Billie Doris McAda endowment, a graduate student may be awarded up to $1500 to present their research findings or their creative projects at a professional, scholarly or scientific conferences. These opportunities enrich  the student’s graduate experience and help to disseminate research findings to a broader audience through professional and scientific conferences. Please speak to your graduate coordinator for more information. Allow for time to process the appropriate documents to receive the award.
