GPSA Workshop Proposal Award
The GPSA awards up to two grants each semester to bring experts to lead specialized workshops, programs, or short courses concentrating on subject matter not addressed by the current curriculum at the University. Each semester, an enrolled graduate student may apply for an award of $1,500. This money can be used for travel, lodging, supplies, fees, or other reasonable expenses related to bringing an expert to the campus. Workshops that will benefit multiple disciplines are given preference.
Applications are typically due on the sixth Thursday of the Fall and Spring semesters (unless noted otherwise) and the grant can be used at any time during the current academic year. The next submission deadline is Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 4:30pm in the GPSA Dropbox in Morrill Hall room 201B. For additional information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, see the documents above, or contact the Teaching Excellence and Graduate Achievement (TEGA) Committee chair.
