The College of Engineering is dedicated to promoting an engaging and rewarding community for its graduate students, and one way of accomplishing this is through the Graduate Student Community Grant program.  The purpose of this program is to stimulate creative enterprises that will enhance the collaborative spirit among graduate students in the College of Engineering.  Fostering a sense of community can be achieved through crossing disciplines, building connections, and establishing bonds of kinship.  Examples include hosting a professional development workshop, running a social event, planning an outing, etc.  Graduate students, faculty, and staff are invited to submit proposals for ideas that will further these goals.

Proposals will be accepted June 1-30.  Funding decisions will be made by July 31.  The activities that are funded during this round should take place between August 1 and December 31.

Preference will be given to unique initiatives that are open to all CoE graduate students.  Historically, funding has ranged from $200-$1500.  Funding is limited, so the smaller your request is, the more likely it will be selected.

This program is being facilitated by the CoE Office of Student Affairs, which will provide funding and guidance.  For more details, please go to http://gscg.engin.umich.edu/.  Questions may be directed to Andria Rose, ajrose@umich.edu.
