Northwestern University provides an impressive research computing infrastructure for its scholars and is attentive to the current and future computing needs of the research community. Kellogg's Research Support team manages a broad array of research resources ranging from experimental facilities, servers for web surveys and high-end computational servers, datasets and data storage services, as well as all necessary software and training by experienced research staff.
Research Resources and Support
Kellogg PhD Students are also provided with a subsidy to purchase computer equipment.
Opportunities for Additional Funding
There are opportunities for Kellogg doctoral students to request additional funding in support of their research program. Students should contact their PhD coordinators and/or research advisors when these opportunities arise. PhD students may also consider applying for a Conference Travel Grant
through The Graduate School
, which would supplement the travel funding received by their program.
Opportunities for external research grants and fellowships may be available through the Office of Fellowships at Northwestern University
