Welcome to Rutgers! As we start the fall 2013 semester and a new academic year, the GradFund Fellowship Advising Team is pleased to welcome the new cohort of graduate students to campus and to welcome back our returning graduate students. The fall semester is always a busy time. Not only is it the start of the academic year but it is also the beginning of the deadline season for nationally competitive grants and fellowships.
Many of you have spent your summer working with us as you develop your fellowship and grant applications for the upcoming season. We’ve been pleased to work with you and we look forward to working with you in individual appointments in the coming weeks as you continue to refine your materials. If you have not yet scheduled an appointment for assistance with identifying fellowships and grants that you may be eligible to apply for or to receive feedback on a draft funding application, be sure to schedule an appointment today by sending an email to gradfund (at) rci.rutgers.edu.
On Tuesday, September 3rd, we will host drop-in hours at our offices at 25 Bishop Place on the College Ave Campus. Be sure to stop by to briefly meet with a Fellowship Advisor and to learn more about GradFund services and the fellowships and grants you may be eligible to apply for this year.
Finally, during this first week of classes, be sure to visit GradFund Central. We have updated the site to include many new and exciting features!
