Research Dissemination Support Program

Program Overview

The Research Dissemination Support (RDS) Program recognizes faculty, staff, and post-doctoral fellows who promote the visibility and scholarly reputation of Walden University through the dissemination of their research and research-related activities.  The RDS Program offers two types of awards: 

  • Publication RDS – provides an award for publishing research and research-related activities. The Publication RDS is issued after the publication is in circulation and available to the public..  

  • Presentation RDS – provides an award for presenting research and research-related activities at local, national, and international professional conferences given in f2f, hybrid, and virtual formats.  The Presentation RDS award may be applied for and conferred prior to conference attendance, although funds are not disbursed until after the presentation has been delivered.  

Please contact with questions about the program and how to apply. 

As of May 2, 2022, the RDS program is “back to normal!”  

Applications for both indexed and non-indexed publications as well as conferences (pre-approval and post-conference) are now eligible for consideration. If awarded, RDS funds will be disbursed per the usual notification process.
