Before applying for a RISE grant, you must read the RISE Guidelines. Note that there is a deadline to apply, and you should check that you are within the deadline before you apply.
Seniors please note that you must apply by the last day of your fall semester , if you wish to receive a grant to use during your spring semester. Otherwise, the following standard guidelines apply for everyone:
Your RISE grant application deadline is the same as the deadline for your program if you plan to use RISE to help fund a program for which you also have to apply (study abroad, internship, conference, etc.) For example, if the application for your experience is due by September 1, then your RISE application is also due September 1.
The 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 of the 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.
