  • transcription
  • travel
  • honoraria for research participants
  • photocopying
  • printing supplies
  • hiring a research assistant

To apply for funding, please complete the online request form. This form will assist the FSW Programs Office to better track research funds that are granted internally to students. Please note that while requests for funding for thesis or dissertation research are normally granted, the Associate Dean: PhD Program has final budgetary approval.

Once your request has been approved, please submit the correspondint expense form (Travel Expense, Meeting Expense, Cheque Requisition), to the FSW Programs Office (Peggy Freymond pfreymond@wlu.ca).  All itemized original receipts and documentation for your expenses must be attached.
