Graduate Scholarly Development Fund


The CLAS Graduate Scholarly Development Fund, supported by funding from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Office of Graduate Studies, provides funding for scholarships of up to $750 to support the scholarly development of graduate students in the College.


To ensure a broad and equitable distribution of limited funding across the College, awards are distributed to departments, that then select students to receive the award. Each College department is allocated funding, with a minimum allocation of $750 and a maximum of $2250. Allocations are based on graduate student headcount across master’s and doctoral programs.
