Rogers Research Award
The Rogers Research Award provides funding up to $1500 to facilitate research directly related to the master's thesis or doctoral dissertation, including artistic projects for the MFA. Funds may be used for travel expenses, lodging, and qualifying research materials (such as art or lab supplies, software not already available via UNM, or printing or digitizing costs) directly relevant to advancing the research project. If you are traveling internationally, you must get approval from the Office of Export Control and submit with your application. **Please note Export Control takes at least one week to get reviewed and approved.
Additionally, students traveling internationally will need to register their travel with UNM's Global Education Office. Their form does not have to be turned in when submitting the Rogers application, but must be submitted and approved before travel to be eligible for reimbursement if awarded.
Eligible students must be in good academic standing and enrolled in a graduate program at the time of application. Students must be registered as full time for Fall and 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, Graduate Research Supplement, or the Doctoral Conference Presentation Grant in the same funding semester.
