Glasscock Summer Research Fellows 2021

New funding opportunity!

DEADLINE: Monday, April 19, 2021, 5:00 p.m.

In order to provide research support given continuing effects on research activities from the pandemic, the Glasscock Center is offering a new funding opportunity to support both faculty and graduate students in affiliated departments. Three (3) grants are available to faculty for the purpose of hiring a graduate student to assist with research. The grant provides $5,000 in salary to pay the graduate student for work as a full-time GAR during the 3 summer months. In addition, we will provide funds to cover the 6 hours of tuition and fees for which GARs must be enrolled. The purpose of the grant is to support faculty and graduate research from within the Texas A&M community. Faculty applying for this grant should employ the student over the summer of 2021.

Criteria:

  • Faculty applicant should demonstrate the need for research support to make progress on a project that could otherwise not be completed. 
  • Application must address the significance of the research project within the field.
  • Application should address how the work will benefit the graduate student and present a clear plan for how the graduate student will support the research
  • The faculty member is responsible for issuing the call for applications and the selection of the graduate student. 

Eligibility: Tenured and Tenure-track faculty in affiliated departments are eligible to apply. 

ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Faculty applicant should supply their current 2-page CV

We recommend answering application questions in a Word document and saving it for your records before pasting it into our form for submission.
