The Graduate School has awarded seven Professional Development Grants to support discipline-specific programming for graduate students in 2018. The grants, established in 2014, award up to $2,000 to help graduate students and their departments create discipline-specific professional development programming and resources for exploring both academic and broad career options. Such programming complements the offerings from The Graduate School, which focus on topics that are applicable across disciplines.
