XE awards up to three Research Grants per academic year, each for a maximum of $500. The grants are intended to cover the costs of travel, materials, and other research-related expenses incurred in relation to producing their master’s project. Preference will be given to students whose research outline and budget shows a clear need for additional funds to produce their master’s project.
Students will be asked to submit a one-page proposal detailing the nature of the research they intend to conduct and how it relates to their master’s project, a budget, and the name and contact information of the faculty member who has agreed to serve as their Master’s Project Advisor. Students who are awarded grants will be asked to submit a one-page report detailing how they used their funds to advance their research.
