Application Deadline: November 1, 2016
Former Dean James Doi established the Doi Research Fund to help defray unusual costs associated with the completion of especially worthy doctoral student dissertations in the College of Education. It was the intent of Dean Doi to help with “unusual” costs not typical of most dissertations. For example, the award might be used to help pay for mailing costs associated with an extensive survey, but not for ordinary correspondence; the costs of leasing or purchasing unusual equipment, but not for purchasing a general use computer; the costs of professional transcription of extensive interviews, but not to pay for simple editing services to prepare the final dissertation. No present limits are placed on the potential amount of an award, but limits on the resources provided by the fund established by Dean Doi and the anticipated number of awards each year usually result in individual awards of a few hundred dollars, rather than thousands of dollars. A student may request an award of any amount, but the final award might be for some smaller amount. Students are asked to request support only for activities or items that cannot be adequately supported through other means.
