Training in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Windsor embraces the scientist-practitioner model. There is a strong emphasis on excellence in both research and clinical training, which is backed by our international reputation and the success that our students have enjoyed during and after completing the program.
The Graduate Research Award in Clinical Neuropsychology (GRACN) provides support to our students by offsetting some of the cost of presenting scholarly research at scientific conferences.
The award was established in 1995 by Louis L. Odette, a local businessman and philanthropist. Since the beginning of the award, this fund has been supplemented by other sources and donors.
In order to be eligible to apply for funding, a student must be the first author of a presentation (e.g., poster) that was accepted for presentation based on a peer review process. Eligible travel expenses up to $500 may include conference registration, transportation costs, hotel, and other expenses (i.e. printing fees). Additional considerations apply for subsequent awards, including the expectation that prior recipients must demonstrate that they have a manuscript from the previous award at least in the "revise and resubmit" stage prior to subsequent funding.
For additional information about this award, please read the document "GRACN – Graduate Research Award in Clinical Neuropsychology" (.pdf format) before you meet with the area coordinator.
You may give securely online with your debit or credit card by going to the Support Student Research link to the right of the screen or by mailing your cheque payable to the “University of Windsor” with a note in the memo section to “designate to GRACN.”
