If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
As a new grad student, I feel that I could benefit from learning about the process of applying for grants/fellowships, as well as learning what grants/fellowships are even available. However, in light of our time management meeting and the fact that I am a masters student with only a year left + secure funding, do you suggest I attend?
I’d say this is optional. I’d not worry about this now.
