Credit Your Grant

In the research community, it's important to acknowledge your grant support: it speaks to the value of your research, and gives credit where credit is due.

 

 

Here's how to acknowledge your Honors College grant:

 


On a research poster

Place the University of Arkansas Honors College logo at bottom left of your poster. Put this credit line to the right of the Honors College logo:

This research has been supported by an Honors College grant.

What size, you ask? Big enough that researchers at the conference (read: possible future mentors/employers) can easily read the credit line. They'll be impressed that you've secured grant funding as an undergraduate.

 

 

 In your presentation

If you are using PowerPoint or another presentation software with graphics, include a slide that has the University of Arkansas Honors College logo and a credit line that specifically states the grant(s) you have received.

For example: This research has been supported by an Honors College Research Grant. Travel to this conference was supported by an Honors College Travel Grant.

 

 

 On a published paper

If your research work is published, be sure to include an acknowledgement that specifically states the grant(s) you have received.

Since the Honors College logo won't be included in this context, it's important to use our full name: University of Arkansas Honors College. If you are a coauthor for the paper, the acknowledgement should state your name.

For example: Jane Doe's research was supported by an Honors College International Research Grant and two Honors College Travel Grants.

Frequently, grant support is noted in the first footnote of a research paper, but this may vary, depending on the journal. Ask, and make sure that your grant is properly acknowledged.

Did you receive a grant from another organization?
Check with the person who awarded the grant about how to properly acknowledge the support.
