GSS Original Work Grants

The purpose of the GSS Original Work Grant is to support the research and creative work conducted by graduate students at Ohio University.

The grant is intended to fund direct project-related expenses such as travel, lodging, materials and equipment related to research. Any graduate student enrolled for at least 1 credit hour and pursuing a graduate degree at Ohio University can apply for this grant.

NOTE: The Original Work Grant materials are up to date for the 2016-2017 academic year.  Please contact the Grant Chair if you have any questions!

**Effective Summer 2013, students may only submit ONE Original Work Grant application per funding cycle for consideration.**
