Office of Research & Sponsored Programs: Research Dissemination

Walden - Faculty Research Dissemination Support (RDS) Program (faculty & staff)

Managed by the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs the Research Dissemination Support (RDS) Program is intended to support faculty and staff who promote the visibility and scholarly reputation of Walden University through the dissemination of research and research-related activities conducted by Walden University faculty.  The RDS Program offers two types of grant awards:

  • Publication RDS – provides an award for publishing research and research-related activities. The Publication RDS is issued after the publication has been published. 
  • Presentation RDS – provides travel support (i.e. costs associated with conference attendance: conference registration/fees, travel, and lodging/accommodation) for presenting research and research-related activities at local, national and international professional conferences.  The Presentation RDS may be applied for and conferred prior to conference attendance, although disbursement of funds is dependent upon submission of travel-related receipts.
