Rogers Research/Project Award
The Rogers Research Award provides funding up to $1000 to facilitate field research directly related to thesis or dissertation including artistic projects for MFA. Funds may be used only for travel/lodging and research materials that are necessary to conduct the field/project research. Travel must be outside of Albuquerque. If you are traveling internationally, you must get approval from the Office of Export Control BEFORE you travel and to receive reimbursement.
Additionally, students traveling internationally will need to register their travel at https://studyabroad.unm.edu/section/independent-study-abroadacademic-travel-regsitration. If you have any questions about completing this requirement, please contact: Global Education Office (GEO) at 505-277-4032 or StudyAbd@unm.edu. The GEO representative will send confirmation you have completed this step. If you do not complete this step for international travel, you will NOT receive any reimbursement even if awarded.
Eligible students must be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application. Students must be registered as full time for Fall + Spring funding and to be eligible for Summer the student must have been full-time in the Spring. You may receive only one (1) grant per funding period: Summer Funding Cycle through Spring Funding Cycle. This includes Fall Funding Cycle. No student will be awarded both the Rogers Research/Project grant and the Doctoral Conference Presentation Grant in the same funding semester.
