Graduate Student Research

Campus aerial

Overview

Along with advisors or PIs, the Center for Research and Fellowships is an additive, independent sounding board for graduate students. We provide support with locating and applying for research fellowships and grants. Our office also helps students pilot next steps ranging from applying to doctoral programs to landing postdoctoral fellowships.
