The Graduate School has spent the past 100 years advancing graduate education and enhancing the graduate student experience through collaboration with the colleges and schools. Responsible for providing academic leadership for over 200 degree programs, we not only build robust research and educational partnerships but we also provide financial and academic support to a diverse student body of scientists, scholars and artists.
Our goal during the course of the next 100 years is to have the resources to provide full funding for our doctoral students as well as funding to support our master’s students. Full funding gives the student time to focus on their research and professional development – eliminating one less worry and stress in the life of a graduate student. Endowed fellowships allow us to recruit the most talented graduate students from all backgrounds, particularly from underserved and underrepresented communities. The work of these excellent graduate students help define the university’s national and international reputation as a leading research university and are critical to nurturing budding undergraduate scholars. In our work to help place our graduates where they can have the biggest impact, gifts and other funding support research and travel grants to help defray the costs of conducting research and presenting at professional conferences. These gifts and financial support also enable us to provide professional and career development services such as our popular Graduate Writing Center.
Thank you for your support.
