Student Research Grants

The Kansas Academy of Science (KAS) Student Research Grant Program has been established to foster the scientific research endeavors of student members of the KAS or students whose major advisor is a member of the KAS. Research funds may be used to support investigation in any scientific field and in any locality.

Competitive grants may be awarded for up to $1,500.00 for Ph.D. and Masters and up to $1000.00 for Undergraduate Student Research Grants. Up to seven grants may be awarded each grant year: three for undergraduate work, two for Masters work, and two for Ph.D. work. Grant recipients are required to present research results at the KAS Annual Meeting in the spring (registration and meal fees will be waived).
