Professional Development Award Announcement

Hello Graduate Students,

The Graduate Student Council is happy to announce the Professional Development Award recipients! We received over 100 qualified and excellent applications for this pilot award program. Due to the clear need for an award of this nature, especially in the current climate, we hope to continue being able to provide this award in the future. Once we know our budget for FY21, we will announce the status of both the Professional Development Award and Travel Award.

Please find below those who were selected for this award. Due to the competition for the $250 award, those who did not win their desired tier and still had very competitive applications were awarded the lower, $100 amount. For those who did not receive an award this time, we are working to continue funding this award and encourage you to apply again. Please visit the GSC Website for upcoming details.
