Graduate students at the University of Delaware whose research involves climate change, in any academic discipline, can apply for up to $10,000 in funding from the Gerard J. Mangone Climate Change Science and Policy Hub. Applications are due Feb. 15 for support of work in spring or summer of 2022.

The Graduate Research Enhancement Grants from the Climate Change Hub will support thesis or dissertation research expenses necessary for degree completion. Students with completed thesis or dissertation proposals can apply. The research supported must occur in 2022-23, and funds can support travel, data collection, data processing, and publications, but may not be used for salary, indirect costs or tuition.

To apply, students must submit a curriculum vitae, an unofficial transcript, a one- to two-page proposal identifying specific research goals and how the funding will advance their thesis or doctoral research, and a budget detailing how the money will be used. Those documents can be emailed to with the subject ‘Graduate Research Grant Application.’

The graduate research enhancement grants are possible through multiple funding sources including the Unidel Foundation and the Gerard J. Mangone endowment.
