Graduate Research Associate Mentoring (GRAM) Program
The School of Graduate Studies accepts proposals from faculty for funding to support a graduate research associate (GRA) to work on a faculty member's research project (recipients). GRAs receive an annual stipend of $12,000 for 600 hours (20 hours a week on average) of work on the research project during the academic year. We anticipate funding two-year awards for 10 GRAs each year. See the GRAM page for more information.
University Research Council Grants
The University Research Council advises the Dean on research related activities at Appalachian. The Council accepts proposals from faculty for funding to support the conduct of research / creative activities each semester. See the URC page for more information.

Proposals for research in both basic and applied/professional fields are welcome. Applicants must agree to deliver a public presentation about the research project to a public audience that will include members of the Board of Trustees. See the URC page for more information.
