Apply now for Graduate Student Life Grants

Do you have an idea for a creative, community-building idea that would enrich the graduate student experience outside the lab? Consider applying for a Graduate Student Life Grant to fund your proposal.

You may address a specific constituency or discipline, or reach across departments, residence halls or student groups. Goals of the Graduate Student Life Grant include further instilling a sense of belonging and purpose, creating shared experiences, and encouraging congregation, socializing and networking beyond the classroom.

The proposal deadline for 2013-2014 is Oct. 18 at 11:59 p.m. For more information — including model programs, project archive and submissions guidelines — visit the Graduate Student Life Grants web page. You may also contact the Grants program at
