Deadlines for CUSE Grants

Important Information About Deadlines:

  • Applications WILL NOT be reviewed until ALL required application materials and necessary approvals have been submitted to CUSE. Incomplete applications will not be considered for funding.
    • All grant applications must include: (1) a proposal, (2) a faculty letter of recommendation, and (3) an itemized budget.
    • Certain projects may also require IRB approval for research involving human subjects and/or NDI approval for international travel to countries with Level 3-4 Travel Advisories. Students are advised to allow plenty of time for IRB review and/or travel approvals what may affect their travel and research plans.
    • If any part of an application is missing, it is "incomplete" and will not be considered submitted by the deadline.


CUSE has instituted priority grant application deadlines for academic year breaks. In order to ensure that your application has the best possible chance to receive funding, you are strongly encouraged to submit your completed application by the dates below. While applications submitted after this date may still be reviewed, CUSE does not guarantee that funding will be available or that the committee will have time to review your application and make a decision before you travel.

Priority Fall Break                September 15, 2019
Priority Winter Break November 17, 2019
Priority Spring Break February 9, 2020



The deadline to submit an application for a grant for summer 2019 is Friday, March 6, 2020. If CUSE does not receive a completed application by that date, you will not be eligible for summer funding. *Note: CUSE will not accept any applications between March 6, 2020 and August 17, 2020.If your proposal is for April, or any time between these dates, please make sure to make the March 6 deadline as well.


If you are applying for grants at other centers or institutes on campus, be sure to check their deadlines as they do not always coincide with CUSE's deadlines.
