Student Kiri Jarvis shares advice on pursuing student grants.
SUNY Oswego offers many opportunities for students to earn grants for research and creative activities. But how do students formulate projects and write their grant applications? A few pointers:
- Find a sponsor. Whether you're looking at a grant for your own work or in tandem with a faculty member, finding the right mentor or sponsor to guide you will greatly help. See our mentor tips for suggestions.
- Consider your interests. You'll spend a lot of quality time preparing the grant proposal and working on the project, so think about a problem you really want to help solve or a thesis you really want to pursue.
- Ask the experts. Take advantage of the resources and advice of our Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
- Do your homework. Know that your proposal will need to include many elements: Cover page, abstract, introduction, literature review, project narrative, list of relevant institutional resources, references, personnel and budget. This ORSP page offers more advice on preparing the proposal itself.
