NASP Graduate Student Research Grants

The NASP Research Committee supports student-initiated research through its Graduate Student Research Grants (GSRG). Up to three $1,000 awards are made each year to students who demonstrate exceptional ability to conduct high-quality research that furthers the mission and goals of NASP and has the potential to impact the field positively. GSRG recipients are eligible to receive $500 Travel Grants to present their research at a future NASP convention.
