External funding may also be available for your research. You are encouraged to regularly visit the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs' "Finding Funding" web page. There you will find a number of resources—including the ORSP Funding Notice newsletter—that point out the latest funding opportunities, including those that support student research.
The UL Lafayette Graduate Student Organization provides funding to currently enrolled graduate students for travel to academic conferences and for purchasing research equipment and supplies. Visit the GSO website for more information on how to apply.
