Through collaboration with graduate students and faculty, the Graduate Student Research Scholarship program was launched in the spring of 2015 as a pilot program originally called the Graduate Research and Inquiry Program (GRIP) Grant. The GRIP Grant program has since evolved into the endowment known as the Graduate Student Research Scholarship Fund. Stay tuned for details about the Graduate Student Research Scholarship Fund!
