The GSAS Research Workshops Program fosters community building within research areas, encourages constructive peer and faculty mentoring, and allows students and faculty to test-drive their current research projects in a collegial setting.
The program supports workshops for graduate students who are learning to conceive and write scholarly articles, thesis prospectuses, and dissertations. These workshops also offer faculty members an opportunity to share drafts of their scholarly work with others in their field. Topics may be cross-disciplinary, and although faculty must submit the formal application, graduate students are encouraged to generate interest and ideas for workshops. Grants of up to $5,000 per year are available for projects in the humanities and social sciences.
This successful program — which has supported 226 workshops to date — is fully supported by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
