Student Research Funding

Linda Waugh / SLAT Research Awards

Student research is vital to the SLAT program and to the academics of the SLAT graduate students.  To the extent possible, and when funding is available, SLAT will monetarily support SLAT Student Research.  Funding for SLAT student research is either through a generous donation by SLAT Emerita Faculty member, Dr. Linda Waugh, or from SLAT’s funds when available.

When funding is available, SLAT will issue a call for student research proposals.  Awards will be made to students based upon the following criteria:

  • IRB approval
  • Academic standing in the program
  • Appropriate Progress to Degree, as outlined in the SLAT Student Handbook.

Funds may be used for the following types of research costs:  individual software, subject compensation, printing costs, supplies such as workbooks, transcription costs when provided by an approved UA vendor, travel abroad when the goal is collection of data.

No awards will be made for individual purchases of equipment such as video and audio recorders.  SLAT has a limited number of these items that can be checked out by students, or they may be checked out from the Main Library and  through UA’s Gear to Go.

No awards will be made for supplemental compensation through the UA payroll system.

Please contact the SLAT administrative offices at for more information and with any questions that you may have.
