All students in the MArch and MS programs are invited to submit proposals for the use of these funds. Grants are awarded based on the quality, rigor, and feasibility of the proposals.
Projects can be either extracurricular (e.g., independent) or an extension of coursework (e.g., thesis/directed research or work pursued in studio or other courses). Funds may be used for travel, books, supplies, or other expenses directly related to the project. Successful applicants will be required to present the results of their research at a symposium that will be held each Fall.
