In support of independent student research at the Graduate School of Education, the GSE Student Government and the Student Affairs Office have allocated limited funds to reimburse GSE students for research-related expenses. Funds can be used for materials and equipment, specialized software, travel to research sites, and other items and services necessary for the completion of the project. Eligibility requirements are as follows:
As part of your application, prepare a project abstract, objective, design and method, and itemize your expenses as they are related to your project.
If your request for reimbursement is approved, the expense reports are to be submitted to Concur, Penn’s expense management system, along with original itemized receipts attached to the specific expense transaction. All reimbursements must be submitted before the end of the Fiscal year on June 30, 2016. This is a hard deadline, there are no exceptions.
Reimbursements are approved on a rolling basis, until the funds are depleted. The maximum amount for reimbursement is $400. We cannot guarantee full reimbursement. Students may only receive reimbursement funding ONCE per semester; second applications in a following semester are wait-listed until the second week of Mayafter first-time applications are reviewed
Applicants are encouraged to seek other funding opportunities. For more information, see the Graduate Student Center’s webpage on Navigating the Grant:
