The Office of Student Research provides funding to support student research, scholarly inquiry, and innovation at Illinois State. Whether you are applying for a research grant or funding to support travel to conferences to present your work, we want to contribute to the success of your research experience.
Research grants are a good way for you to receive funding for project supplies, student stipends, or other research materials. We provide undergraduate research support to talented and highly motivated students who are looking to facilitate research projects during the academic year or over the summer. Grants can be used to contribute to the costs of research materials, resources, facilities and more.
In addition to the resources found through the Office of Student Research, graduate students should also visit the Graduate School website for funding opportunities. In particular, graduate students may be interested in the Dissertation Completion Grant and the Ora Bretall Scholarship.
