Before applying for a RISE grant, you must read the RISE Guidelines. Note that there is a deadline to apply, and you should check you are within the deadline if you are going to apply:
Your RISE grant application deadline is the same as the deadline for your program if you are hoping to use RISE to help fund an experience through a program for which you have to apply (study abroad, internship, conference, etc.) For example, if the application for your experience is due by January 1, then your RISE application is also due January 1.
Your RISE grant application deadline for all other projects (independent study, research or class project, internships without an application deadline, etc.) is a minimum of four weeks prior to the project’s start date or the expenditure of any your project’s budget funds, whichever comes first. For example, if you need to purchase an airplane ticket in the fall for a research trip that you are taking over winter break, and you hope to use RISE funds to fund the trip, you need to apply for RISE four weeks before you need to buy that airplane ticket in the fall.
There will be no retroactive funding. If the money has already been committed or spent, it is not appropriate to apply for RISE.
