Student Research Grant

Applications closed until September 2019.

The Illinois State Academy of Science encourages Illinois high school, undergraduate, and graduate student research for student members of the Academy.

In support of this effort, this year we doubled the award values for the competitive research grants.

  • Grant amounts are up to $200 for high school students, up to $500 for undergraduate students, and up to $1,000 for graduate students.
  • These grants are intended to support your research efforts, and cannot include funds for salary, standard equipment, tuition, travel to meetings, manuscript preparation, publication costs, or payment of indirect costs such as facilities and administration.
  • If you are a previous award recipient you may apply for a second year of support, but not for a third year. However, each application is treated individually, so previous award receipt does not guarantee continuing support.

Only online applications are accepted. Submissions will be accepted in September, with awards announced in December of each year.
