The Graduate Student and Independent Scholar Research Grant supports research toward the completion of a thesis, dissertation, or publication. The grant can be used toward the cost of research travel or accommodations, the acquisition of image rights for publication, language study, and other related activities. Applications are limited to graduate students and scholars who do not hold a full-time position at an academic institution. Applicants must be SHERA members in good standing and must have membership in the organization for at least two consecutive years. Deadline for application is generally in the fall.
