Grad Fund 2010 Summer Mentoring Programs—Now Accepting Applications

Would you like to apply for external fellowships and grants but are mystified by the process?

Do you feel like you never have time to work on an application?

Jump start your funding applications this summer by participating in one of our Summer Mentoring Programs.

We are pleased to announce that this year; we are offering three Summer Mentoring Programs designed to help graduate students apply for nationally competitive grants and fellowships:    
  • Early Graduate Study Fellowship Mentoring Program
  • Dissertation Funding Mentoring Program
  • Postdoctoral Fellowship Mentoring Program 
Our Summer Mentoring Programs offer students a unique opportunity to be immersed in the proposal writing and application process in preparation for the fall and spring deadline seasons.

Space is limited and the deadline to apply to participate in one of the Mentoring Programs is May 14, 2010.   
As a part of the application process, all applicants must complete a Mentoring Program Consultation Meeting between March 1 and May 7.  Phone appointments will be available to students who are not yet on campus.  To schedule a Mentoring Program Consultation Meeting, send an email to gradfund at by April 30.

A copy of the application can be downloaded from our  Sakai site:  Current and incoming graduate students who do not have access to our Sakai site should send an email to gradfund at to request access.

If you have any questions about the Mentoring Program, please contact Assistant Dean Teresa Delcorso at gradfund at or 932-2705.

New Year, New Look, New Content

As we start a new year, our blog has a new look and we will experiment with new content. For the past year, we have used our GradFund blog to post information on upcoming deadlines, workshops and events. I hope this information has been useful to you. I will continue to post news and information but will also expand our posts to include advice and insights into the world of grants and fellowships. Be sure to check our site on a regular basis for news, information, insights and advice. We plan to post weekly.
