Funding Assistance

Students are encouraged to proactively search for funding opportunities. Most funding opportunities require students to apply at least one year in advance, so planning is required.  See these tools and avenues for assistance to help you in your grant writing.

Be Rewarded

Proposal Incentive Award Program: work with Michigan Tech's funding specialists, who will offer revisions on your proposal and advice on the submissions process. By being proactive in seeking external funding, eligible graduate students can receive incentive awards up to $100 for submitting research and/or fellowship proposals to external agencies.

Build Your Research Profile

Michigan Tech students have access to Grant Forward.  Our Research Development Office staff highly recommend graduate students create an account to:

  • Build a research profile

  • Display research interests and the evolution of interests across time
  • Select privacy options to determine who can view your profile
