The Graduate Research and Development (GRD) Committee is a standing committee in the GPSA. It was created around the funding that was allocated to the GPSA by the New Mexico State Legislature in 2000. This funding source for graduate and professional students is set up to assist larger projects that require substantial funding, and is aimed at encouraging UNM students to work on research with state agencies, or in areas that directly benefit the state of New Mexico.
The work of past GPSA Councils and the Lobby Committee was invaluable in obtaining and keeping this fund for graduate and professional students. The GRD fund is an excellent example of how your student Lobbying is being utilized to help all graduate and professional students at UNM.
Students may receive up to $3000 per academic year through the GRD fund to conduct research. If you are conducting research with a New Mexico state agency, you may receive up to $5000. The GRD grant has only one funding cycle, each fall. The deadline is the fifth Friday of the fall semesters. Applicants may fund activity from July 1 to June 30.
If you have any questions, please email unmgpsagrants (at) gmail.com or call 277-3803.
