Dear Georgia State Faculty,
We are pleased to announce that the FY2015 Research Initiation and Scholarly Support Grant applications and the FY2014 Dissertation Grant application are now available on
URSA's Internal Grant Program page. Please inform all eligible doctoral students about the Dissertation Grant program as soon as possible (applications for these awards are due Oct. 18, 2013).
After a comprehensive assessment of our internal grant programs and based on feedback from many of you, we have discontinued the Faculty Mentored Grant program starting in FY2015, and have added a mentor option to the Research Initiation Grant program that
will provide the exact same type of support as the Faculty Mentored Grant program provided previously. Furthermore, we have made some substantial changes to the Research Initiation, Scholarly Support and Dissertation grant program applications. Please review
these carefully before applying for upcoming deadlines.
We welcome any questions you may have about the new applications and instructions for applying. You may contact either
Monica Swahn or
Kelly Stout with your questions.
Monica H. Swahn, Ph.D.
Associate Vice President for Research
