  • 20-21 COESA Student Dissertation/DRP/DIP Research Scholarship Application

    In lieu of conference attendance, students may apply for up to $500 in dissertation/DRP/DIP funding, but may not exceed the $1000 allotment in student reimbursements for the fiscal year. Students may apply only once during their program.

    Please note that this funding cannot be combined with MCE Dissertation Grant Funding Support; students may not receive both awards.

  • Miller Scholarship-Conference Reimbursement Application within MCE

    *This is NOT a COESA application. This is a tuition-based scholarship that students may obtain once a year through the Morgridge College of Education. This is NOT a COESA scholarship, grant, or application. For more information, please email MCE.finaid@du.edu. You will have to follow thorough directions to submit this application, and COESA will not be involved in this process. Good luck!

  • The Graduate Student Professional Development Grant (GSPDG) was established to support graduate student academic progress and foster professional growth by encouraging students to present, perform, or compete at significant conferences or exhibitions. Funds are subject to availability.

    Students who have received partial funding from COESA in the prior academic quarter can apply for GSPDG funding from the Office of Graduate Education, when funding is available. (As of August 11, 2020, the GSPDG Portfolio site indicated that funding was not available and encouraged students to check again in June 2021.)

    Although this funding (when available) is not provided by COESA, the forms first must be submitted to COESA for review, and COESA will work with MCE's budget staff to submit forms to the Office of Graduate Education. Please be sure that you're following both COESA deadlines and GSPDG deadlines when applying for this funding in the future.

  • COESA Student Association Grants

    COESA-recognized student associations may apply for reimbursement within 60 days after an event has occurred or by the posted deadlines in the 2020-2021 COESA Budget policies, whichever comes first.

    It may be possible for COESA to assist with making payments directly to vendors rather than having student leaders seek reimbursement after an event; to explore this opportunity, submit the COESA Student Association Grant Application and all required materials to COESA.Treasurer@du.edu at least 7 weeks prior to the event.

    Complete the COESA Student Association Grant Application in Adobe Reader. (Reader is available as a free download at https://get.adobe.com/reader/.) Most web browsers do not allow users to save information in PDFs. If using Preview to complete the COESA Student Conference Grant Application, please be sure that you Print the document as a PDF to save your information.
