Projects selected for funding will be funded effective the following quarter and upon approval of required research protocols. Funds must be expended before the applicant graduates.

Research Compliance:  If the research proposed in the grant application involves animals or human participants/subjects, please contact the Research Compliance staff to understand the compliance application process (  The research protocol must be approved prior to the grant award, so the application should be submitted well in advance of the research (at application time, or sooner).
