MIE deadline for the Award for Graduate Research and Provost’s Graduate Internship Award

Award for Graduate Research (formerly the Provost/Deiss Award)
The Graduate College’s longest-running research support mechanism, the Award for Graduate Research (AGR), is open to all current graduate students, in programs under the auspices of the Graduate College, who seek funding in these three categories: travel, summer stipend, and materials/supplies. Using the same forms, the W.C. and May Preble Deiss Fund for Biomedical Research Award provides funds for research in clinical and basic medical sciences. There are two competitions annually: one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester.
Doing research during a global pandemic: If an applicant’s proposed project will require travel (e.g., visiting an archive, conducting interviews) or may otherwise be impacted by travel and/or public health restrictions—whatever those might be—then the applicant should address this fact transparently and demonstrate awareness of contingencies.

For the spring 2021 research award competition, the Graduate College encourages research addressing discrimination, inequality, and health disparities in communities of color. For the AGR competition, we are particularly interested in these themes from a biomedical (both clinical and basic) perspective. However, the competition is not limited to the above research areas.
Provost’s Graduate Internship Award (formerly the Chancellor’s Graduate Internship Award)
The Graduate College created the Provost’s Graduate Internship Award (PGIA) to incentivize graduate students to independently identify short (three-month) internship opportunities that might lead to employment following graduation. Students in programs with mandatory internships as part of their curriculum are ineligible. A handful of potential host units have articulated their needs–see “Who is hiring?” For a full description and instructions, visit Provost’s Graduate Internship Award.
