The Graduate Student Senate offers grants to assist graduate students of the University of Oklahoma in research and scholarly endeavors. These grants are designed to facilitate scholarly research and encourage graduate students to participate in professional and graduate conferences, creative exhibitions, and career fairs. 



APPLICATIONS DUE March 6 at 5:00 p.m.

Graduate Student Senate grant awards are supplementary in nature and operate on a reimbursement basis. Requirements for eligibility include:

  • The applicant must be enrolled in a graduate program at the University of Oklahoma during the semester in which he/she receives the Research and/or Conference Grant(s).
  • The applicant must be from an Academic Unit (Department / School / College) in good standing within the Graduate Student Senate.

SGA Graduate Student Senate

Conoco Student Leadership Center, Suite 181
900 Asp Avenue
Norman, OK  73019

Once applications are received and the selection committee has made their final decision, a list of grant recipients and amounts awarded will be posted on this website. If you are awarded a grant, please remember to hound your department to process your receipts. Failure of your department to process our forms by the due date on the award letter means failure to receive funds.

There are instructions on saving the PDFs within the general instructions. Also, the PDFs use the most up-to-date version of Adobe, which can be accessed in any of the computer labs on campus if you are having trouble.


Because of the travel ban to California, we will need a letter from your department chair stating that your travel fits the requirements listed on the email the university sent out on Jan 24, 2020 entitled "State-Funded Travel to California" and making it clear how those requirements are met through the travel. It would be best if you turn this letter in with your grant application(s), but we will also accept the letter being turned in to the SGA office as late as March 13th at 5:00PM. The grant application deadline still stands at March 6, 2020 at 5:00PM.
