GSS 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 they receive the grant.
- The applicant must be from an Academic Unit (i.e., Department / School / College) in good standing within the GSS.
After the applications are received, sorted and organized ... the selection committee can make their final decisions. Only THEN a list of grant recipients and amounts awarded will be made available.
*If you are awarded a grant, please remind your Academic Unit to process your receipts. The failure to process our forms by the due date on the award letter means failure to receive funds.
