To be eligible, grant proposals must focus on one of the three possible topics for the purpose of the student’s original research.

The Submission of a Grant Proposal must consist of 5 parts:

1.      A summary of the research, including an overview of the purpose and goals for conducting the research.

2.      A brief literature review (maximum of 3 pages) of the current research that serves as a basis for the proposal.

5.      Proposed Budget which must include how the grant will be used to support the research (i.e., travel, acquisition/development of forms/measures, payment for assistance with data collection, accessing material/resources from sources that would otherwise be inaccessible, etc.)
