Apply for GRCO

Graduate Research and Creative Opportunity (GRCO) grants provide a $1,000 grant to support original research, scholarship, or creative work by USU graduate students with the guidance of a faculty member. Proposals include requests for funds to cover the costs of equipment, supplies, and project-related travel.

The grant is awarded to students only once per year. Interested students must apply between May 22 and June 15, or wait for the next fall cycle.

Before you apply, do you have the following documents read to upload?

  • Proposal Narrative
  • Project Timeline
  • Budget
  • Letter of Mentor Support – We will be contacting your faculty mentor for the Letter of Mentor Support after the proposal is submitted. Please make them aware of this.
  • Curriculum Vita

Do not submit an GRCO proposal without these 5 documents being complete and finalized. It will not be reviewed!

The closing date for GRCO applications is June 15, 2017 at midnight.
