Student Research Grant

2022 Application Period:
Saturday, October 1 through Saturday, November 13

The Illinois State Academy of Science encourages Illinois high school, undergraduate, and graduate student research for student members of the Academy. You must have a current student membership to apply.

In support of this effort, we offer multiple competitive research grants with individual awards of up to $1,000.

  • 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┬ásalary, 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 a previous award receipt does not guarantee continuing support.

Only online applications are accepted. Submissions generally open in September of each year, with awards announced in December of that year.

Form will show below if during the open period for application. Otherwise, a message will be posted regarding the application period. You also must be logged in or you will see a message indicating you need to login. Then the form will be available.
