OSR Student Grants

The Student Grants are designed to fund costs associated with student-based research projects or creative activity (RCA) pursued outside the classroom. The Student Grants are not intended to cover the costs related to class projects, class assignments or any activities that are associated with a traditional "in the classroom" course. This grant cannot be used to fund or supplement funding for study abroad trips, student teaching, training, internships or travel. Each award will not exceed $500 per student per academic year.

Applications for the Student Grants will be competitively evaluated by the OSR Awards Committee. The quality of the student research or creative activity (RCA) experience will be a determining factor in being selected. The committee may require budget revisions and/or reductions and other changes before a grant is made. The number of grants awarded depends on the budget and the funds available to the OSR each year.

To be eligible, students must be in good academic standing (GPA 3.0) and registered as a full-time student in any program at CSUSB. If you have received a Student Grant previously, please be aware that preference will be given to new applicants, unless funding permits for additional awardees.

Grantees are asked to submit a progress report and a final report explaining how the award was used. Grantees are also required to present a poster and oral presentation during the annual “Meeting of the Minds” Student Research Symposium. Applications are submitted online.
