The Awards and Scholarships Committee offers dissertation grants to support the research needs of WSU Ph.D. students. These grants will be awarded on a rolling basis to help cover expenses generated as students work to complete their dissertations projects.
These expenses include but are not limited to; purchasing or renting equipment, licenses for data analysis software, data collection, compensation for participants who completed questionnaires, interviews, focus groups, or other experiments.
A maximum of $500.00 will be awarded for the entire academic year. Award amounts are also subject to application volume and fund requests.
Awards may only be used towards the costs associated with the student’s dissertation research. Awards cannot be used for tuition, living expenses, books, and travel not directly related to the completion of the dissertation preparation.
These grants are to recognize the hard work of Ph.D. students and their valuable dissertation research.
Funds are available to WUS Ph.D. students for the 2020-2021 academic year who meet the following criteria:
1. In good standing with WSU and the Graduate School.
2. Have completed at least one semester in the doctoral program (at the time of application)
3. Have passed the preliminary examination.
4. Pay the Pullman S&A fee
Reason for rejections
1. Your application does not have an appropriate citation/reference. Failure to do so will disallow your application to be considered.
2. If you apply for a book for your class, or any book that is available from the WSU library, your application will be rejected.
3. If you are not Pullman S&A fee-paying student, you will not be eligible for the grant.
