Graduate Student Awards

The Graduate Research & Scholarship Award (GRASA) supports individual or collaborative graduate student research that is likely to be publishable.

Graduate Conference Travel & Research Funding provides travel funds to support attendance at educational research conferences.

The Graduate Student Reimbursement Form allows graduate students to seek reimbursement for travel expenses related to attending educational research conferences.

Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Information and training needed to be able to participate in human subjects research is available through the Boston University Office of Research Ethics & Compliance. The mandatory human subjects training must be completed by all individuals, including students, who will be involved in the design and conduct of your research, regardless of whether they receive compensation from the award.

BU Wheelock students should follow the student IRB submission protocol. For a step-by-step instructions for submission to the IRB, review the Wheelock IRB Pre-Review Checklist.
