WTAMU Research: Grants

Student Poster PresentationKillgore Faculty Research and Graduate Student Research Grant Program


Each fall semester the Killgore Research Committee requests proposals for the Killgore Faculty Research (KFR) and Graduate Student Research (GSR) grant program. Generally, faculty awards are made in the amount of $5,000 or less. Student grants are limited to $3,500.

Killgore Faculty Research grants are available for all disciplines and are geared toward the discovery of new knowledge leading to publication, performance or exhibition appropriate to the applicant's discipline. Including students in the project is encouraged. These proposals also impact the Panhandle of Texas directly and, secondarily, the state.

International travel cannot be funded by this program.

Graduate Student Research grants are open to all disciplines and are meant to educate the recipient in the philosophies, techniques and tools of research through the discovery of new knowledge leading to publication, performance or exhibition appropriate to the applicant's discipline. Funding may be used to support the recipient's thesis or dissertation research.

Questions about applying for one of these grants may be directed to Internal Grant Administrator Steve McLean via email, by phone at 806-651-2983, or in person at his office in the Killgore Research Center, Room 176.

WTAMU Mission Statement (linked here) must be addressed in the proposal.
