The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Graduate School has selected 10 recipients for 2019 Research Grants for Research Doctoral Students (RGRDS) awards. The RGRDS program awards small grants worth $1,000 on a competitive basis to support research/projects initiated and conducted by students of the SIUE education doctorate (EdD) programs, doctor of nursing practice (DNP) programs and co-operative PhD programs to enhance their academic progress.

“SIUE doctoral students conduct original research and creative activities as part of their programs,” said Jerry Weinberg, PhD, associate provost for research and dean of the Graduate School. “These projects can have wide-ranging impact, as well as produce scholarly works such as publications and public presentations. The research grants for doctoral students provide necessary resources to conduct and enhance the students’ outstanding work.”

Although faculty advisors oversee the students, the program’s purpose is to support doctoral research. Proposals are approved by the student’s major advisor. The RGRDS Review Committee makes the recommendation on funding.

The following is a list of the 2019 RGRDS award recipients:
