The ASU Graduate College has established these awards to assist graduate students with unanticipated research and academic costs associated with COVID-19 and pandemic response. The Pandemic Impact Award is intended to assist students whose research or culminating projects have experienced unexpected financial impact due to COVID-19 closures.
Graduate students who have a demonstrated financial impact on their research or culminating experience can apply for a one-time award (treated like a grant) up to $750 to be applied toward these expenses. Expenses can be already incurred (receipts required) or anticipated/needed in the coming weeks (with exact cost quotes included in application)..
