Scholarship Program Reporting Requirements

Note: new awards made in April 2009 are one-year awards for academic year 2009/2010 only. Therefore, first-year DAGSI students are not required to submit the reports.

DAGSI First-Year Assistantship Students: Information on Required Reporting

Please refer to the Program Schedule for the current due date for the following information.

The following information is required from ALL DAGSI Ph.D. students who received new tuition + assistantship awards in April 2008 or later. In other words, any student receiving a new award for academic year 2008/2009, beginning Summer or Fall term 2008, must submit the information. Students who received their DAGSI awards in prior years and were renewed in 2008 are not required to submit this information.

DAGSI expects assistantship students to take a proactive role in lining up funding for their entire doctoral program. A second year of DAGSI funding is available provided the student identifies the source(s) of the funding and submits a research plan for his/her doctoral work. The second year of DAGSI funding may be used at any time during the student’s doctoral program; it need not immediately follow the first year of DAGSI funding. More detailed information can be found in the Scholarship Program and Schedule section. DAGSI expects that most students will line up funding from faculty research grants, so we require information both from the student and the faculty member.

A student who cannot demonstrate that he or she is fully funded for the doctoral program risks losing a second year of DAGSI funding. Note that students are not competing for funds at this stage. Any student in good academic standing who demonstrates funding and presents a viable research plan will receive a second year of funding from DAGSI.

Students and faculty must complete the required form, research plan, and signature form and submit them together to DAGSI by the due date (see Program Schedule). Further instructions for the plan can be found on the form, but here is the critical information:

The plan should be written as a separate document and attached to the form. The plan should include the following: statement of the problem; general research methodology; timeline and milestones; potential results and their significance and application.

The plan should be no longer than 3 text pages (single-spaced). Additional pages for graphics, tables, milestone charts, and references are allowed. If another document containing the required information already exists, it may be used instead.

DAGSI First-Year Ph.D. Tuition-Only and M.S. Tuition-Only Students: Information on Required Reporting

Please refer to the Program Schedule for the current due date for the following information.

The following information is required from ALL DAGSI doctoral and masters students who received new tuition only awards in April 2008 or later. In other words, any student receiving a new award for academic year 2008/2009, beginning Summer or Fall term 2008, must submit the information. Students who received their DAGSI awards in prior years and were renewed in 2008 are not required to submit this information.

DAGSI expects all students to take a proactive role in lining up funding for their entire graduate program. A second year of DAGSI funding is available provided the student identifies the source(s) and approximate amount of the funding beyond that received from DAGSI. Note that, for Ph.D. students, the second year of DAGSI funding may be used at any time during the student’s doctoral program; it need not immediately follow the first year of DAGSI funding. More detailed information can be found in the Scholarship Program and Schedule section.

Students are not competing for funds at this stage. A second year of DAGSI funding is available provided
the student identifies the source(s) of funding for his or her graduate program beyond the support received from DAGSI. Any student in good academic standing who documents his or her funding beyond DAGSI will receive a second year of funding from DAGSI.

Students must complete the required form and submit it to DAGSI by the due date (see Program Schedule).
