In spring of 2016, the Student Involvement and Leadership Center partnered with the Office of Research to transform the existing Utah State University Student Association Research and Projects Award program to the Graduate Research and Creative Opportunities (GRCO) Grant Program. GRCO supports worthy independent student projects that advance a student’s professional development and contributes to the scientific community.
What is a GRCO Grant?
Graduate Research and Creative Opportunity (GRCO) grants provide a $1,000 grant to support original research, scholarship, or creative work by USU graduate students with the guidance of a faculty member. Proposals include requests for funds to cover the costs of equipment, supplies and project-related travel.
This grant accepts applications once per year. The 2020 grant cycle for fall funding is open and the deadline for both student submissions and faculty letters of support is June 22 at 11:59 p.m.
