Graduate Student $500 Grant-in-Aid Process and Rules
Academic Exchange Quarterly (AEQ) offers $2,000 annually in grants.   Five hundred is
given with every published AEQ issue: Spring 2010, Summer 2010, Fall 2010, Winter 2010.
  • This grant-in-aid is another example of AEQ efforts to encourage graduate students
    to position themselves as emerging scholars. We believe the AEQ grant-in-aid process will:
    • motivate students to interact with faculty and collaborate with other students
    • enable students to develop academic contacts and maximize networking opportunities
    • broaden awareness and understanding of promoting own scholarship
    • allow students to explore scholarly resources and scholarly publication issues
    • build awareness of the importance of punctuality and planning ahead.
  • Student Eligibility:
    • any full-time or part-time graduate student
    • student status is confirmed by her/his professor
    • studentís college/university must be listed in School Index by State and Country
    • the above School Index also identifies studentís State.
  • The grant goes to the student:
    • whose state is associated with the largest number of accepted submissions
      for the given issue.
    • For example: For Spring 2009 issue the $500 Grant-in-Aid would go to a student from
      New York State. Because there are seven submissions from NY. All other States
      have three or less submissions.
    • In the event of a tie, the grant goes to the student whose institution
      shows the largest number of accepted submissions for the given issue.
    • If a tie remains, the grant goes to the student whose application
      shows the earliest postmark date.
  • Grant-in-Aid Process Helpful Hints
    • Knowing that the number of submissions from studentís State determines outcome,
      make an effort to promote at least two topics listed for the given issue - usually
      related to your major/minor sstudy.
    • For example, you may want to promote the following two topics: Novel & Fiction,
      and Problem-Based Learning when you apply for Spring 2010 issue Grant-in-Aid.
    • To achieve your goal of securing the largest number of submissions from your state,
      use several promotional options.
    • If there is a Feature Editor for the listed topic, to eliminate duplication of
      Call for Papers, please contact said editor.   NOTE: Editors are busy people and
      they may not have time to engage in any collaborative effort with you.
    • Participate in the above promotion soon after your name is listed on issue page.
      Select one: Spring 2010    Summer 2010    Fall 2010    Winter 2010   
    • Observe deadlines.   Complete all entries.   One application every six months.
  • This grant-in-aid was established in recognition of AEQ Reviewers. They
    understand and accept the importance of the duty and the significance of evaluating
    the literature that describes our accomplishments. Because all reviews are "blind,"
    the author will not know whom to thank for the time and suggestions offered. The
    readers will not cite the reviewers nor thank them when a published article is helpful.
