Publication and Dissertation Costs What are considered publication and dissertation projects costs?:
Expenses of publication, performance, or exhibition of scholarly or creative work as well as costs associated with the final preparation and defense of the dissertation.
What do these costs include?: For those completing degrees required by the college (usually the Ph.D.), allowable expenses include those associated directly with the final preparation of the dissertation, such as photocopying, binding, and microfilming. A single round-trip for the purpose of the final dissertation defense will also be covered. Please note that tuition for the final semester of graduate school is not covered.
For the publication of other manuscripts, allowable expenses include those associated with preparing for publication, such as photocopying, graphics preparation, indexing, page charges, and translation where appropriate. Please check to see whether your publisher offers a discount on page charges for authors at 4-year colleges. Multi-authored publications are supported proportionately to the number of co-authors for the publication. Sometimes publishers require a subvention subsidy from the author. R&D will consider funding these when reasonable and requested by reputable publishing houses. Data entry, keyboarding, and proof-reading are not ordinarily supported.
For creative and performing artists, the modes and costs of "publication" are often very different. R&D exercises flexibility in these cases to allow expenses for exhibition and performance. How are these projects supported?:
For Ph.D. dissertations, expenses are limited to $1,000. For other manuscripts and projects, the limit is $2,000. Acknowledgements
