Spring 2021 – Award for Graduate Research – Deadline

March 19, 2021

12:00 AM - 4:00 PM


Chicago, IL 60612

The Graduate College’s longest-running support for research by graduate students at UIC is the Award for Graduate Research (AGR). Formerly named the Provost’s Award for Graduate Research and the W.C. and May Preble Deiss Fund for Biomedical Research Award, or collectively the Provost/Deiss Award, the name was shortened to avoid confusion with other funding mechanisms. It is one application; however, the Deiss Fund underwrites research in clinical or basic medical sciences.

For the spring 2021 research award competition, the Graduate College encourages research addressing discrimination, inequality, and health disparities in communities of color. For the AGR competition, we are particularly interested in these themes from a biomedical (both clinical and basic) perspective.  The competition is NOT, however, limited to the above research areas.
