Graduate Research Grants

Proposal Terms

Proposals can be for either solo work or for team research. The requested amount should be limited to $5,000 per grant. Proposals in which most or all of the proposed budget is for data acquisition will be prioritized. Student grants from The Linde Institute may not be used for computer equipment or software costs at this time.

IMPORTANT: All Linde Institute student grants expire on September 30 each year, with no extensions allowed under The Linde Institute endowment. Any grant for a project not completed by September 30 will lapse, and the student may re-apply for completion funds in the next funding round.

Final Report

Each grant recipient is expected to provide a 200-word final report detailing their work under the grant and the paper(s) that follows from the research funded. The report is due to The Linde Institute director no later than 90 days from the grant's expiration.

  • One (or more) clearly specified research question(s)

Experimental proposals should also include:
  • Details about the experimental design
  • Logistical details about the experiment (place, subject pool, etc.)
  • Analysis plans
