The NRESS Ph.D. Program is pleased to offer current students awards to fund travel and research expenses.  The NRESS Student Support Funds total $10,000 annually and are awarded to selected students for travel to conferences to present their research, for equipment purchases and supplies to assist with research, and for supporting lab analysis or field work sampling.  Awards are disbursed in increments of $500 for travel and up to $1,000 for research expenses.  Each request must include a letter of support from the student's advisor.

Current NRESS students are encouraged to apply for Student Support Funds early in the Fall semester.  Requests for funds will be reviewed and awarded on a continuing basis until the funds are exhausted. Awards must be spent by mid-May of the current academic year. Preference will be given to those who have not received funding in previous years.  Students who are awarded funds are asked to complete the standard UNH form to recover expenditures: Reimbursement Form for Student Support Funds.
