Graduate students: Application deadline for 2020 Professional Development Fund extended

The application deadline for the fall 2020 Professional Development Fund for graduate students has been extended by one week to Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. 

In the past, it has typically been awarded to subsidize conference fees, travel, and lodging for conferences and interviews for internships, jobs, and residencies. However, in light of the United States’ current COVID-19 travel guidelines, the Graduate Student Council (GSC) is refraining from using the fund for travel-related expenses for the fall 2020 semester. This semester, GSC will focus on funding virtual conference fees, virtual workshop fees, application fees and other forms of online professional development.

Apply for the fund via the GSC CampusGroups page.
