WRD encourages WRD majors and minors to conduct research at UK.

We encourage work in areas related to writing, rhetorical studies, or digital research. Such work might include:
- Studies of social media trends
- Documentary production
- Research into political rhetoric
- Policy research
- Social activism based research
- Health care rhetoric research
- Specific industry research regarding workplace communication, digital production, branding, or other areas
- Research into the teaching of writing
- Archive construction
To apply, please send a two page letter to the department chair at firstname.lastname@example.org in which you
- Describe your project and its potential for scholarship or the public
- Provide a budget and your need for the funding
- Note any other funding you are current receiving (if any)
Applications will be reviewed and funded on a rolling basis. Decisions will be made by WRD's Steering Committee.
