As we enter the graduate student fall fellowship and grant deadline season, we are pleased to launch the GradFund Webinar Series for the fall 2020 semester.
GradFund has offered webinars on best practices in grantsmanship for graduate students since 2018. Many of the sessions are recorded and available for viewing in the GradFund Resources space which is accessible to the Rutgers community here.
Members of the Rutgers community are welcome to join the GradFund Resources space through sharepoint here or Microsoft Teams here.
We have a full schedule of webinars, virtual office hours and virtual Q&A with the GradFund advising team that will take place in August, September and October, starting next Monday, August 31.
The full schedule with meeting links can be accessed on GradFund Resource Teams here or the GradFund Resources Box Folder here.
