Other Information

MGSA Grad Student Grant Application

Use this to apply for funding for conference registration/travel, research expenses for a project that you are working on, or a professional development workshop/event. These applications will be reviewed by MGSA on a rolling basis at the monthly MGSA meeting (typically the first week of each month), and recipients will be notified immediately upon approval. If the expenses are incurred at UGA (e.g. research facility time) they will be billed directly to MGSA through the department. All other expenses will be reimbursed through the Microbiology department.

Please contact the current MGSA Treasurer for more information.
