CSDC offers 4 grants up to $2,500 each per academic year for MA and PhD students. These research grants are meant to facilitate thesis related research or knowledge mobilization ideas that are not eligible or suitable for funding from other sources. Please note also that the committee looks favourably upon research that will be conducted in concert with the resources of the Media Lab (both on-line and on-site). The grants will be awarded on a competitive basis.
Please send your application as a single PDF file containing all the sections of the application (except reference letters) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
