Funding for Academic Memberships


In order to support relevant academic research of faculty and students, Tinker-Nave will provide funding for approved memberships. Awards will be granted for a maximum of two years (not to exceed $500) after which grantees must resubmit their proposals to a review committee who will determine the viability of renewal. All requests will be granted contingent upon funding. The review committee encourages applicants to seek co-sponsorship from other units on campus to strengthen his/her proposal.
