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 October 1 and October 15, or wait for the next fall cycle.
