Get financial assistance
If you need financial assistance to conduct your thesis research, fund your travel to a national conference or participate in Celebrating Honors, you can apply for funds on the basis of application/merit and evidence of faculty and departmental support by completing the appropriate request form, available below. You may be asked to schedule a follow-up appointment with the Dean, if necessary. All funding requests must be pre-approved prior to making any purchases.
While many students do not have a need for funding, some theses may be costly. Students may receive up to $1000 to complete their thesis. This funding may cover items such as travel (if requesting travel, please review ASU Travel Guidance before submitting), books, copying, equipment (max $100 reimbursement) and other materials as needed throughout the project. Please review the Thesis Reimbursement Application for more details. The application should be submitted early, prior to making any purchases.
Typically used for non-thesis related expenses. This funding may be used to cover expenses related to special projects (i.e. presenting a paper at a conference or attending an annual meeting related to your major). The funds may be used to cover such costs as travel, hotel, conference registration, and supplies. All purchases must be pre-approved, and travel must occur before the final receipt deadline.
Barrett students and their thesis directors can also apply to bring in an outside examiner or expert in the discipline from another institution to serve as the third committee member. The purpose of this support is to encourage students to be more venturesome in their research projects. Students may receive up to $1500 to bring in an expert in their thesis field from outside the University.
