GradBird Scholar is a new and exciting initiative developed by the Graduate School, which aims to recognize graduate students for their scholarly endeavors. Graduate students are encouraged to submit a self-nomination form for their research, business plans, and artwork, or other examples of scholarly activities.
“Our graduate students are essential to the University community,” said Interim Director of the Graduate School Noelle Selkow. “Not only do they teach classes and mentor students, they are working with faculty in ways that go beyond traditional academic learning. We want to showcase them in this new way. As an added bonus, prospective students get a glimpse of what life is like and opportunities available to our graduate students.”
Each month, a committee of graduate students, faculty, and staff will select a new GradBird Scholar recipient who will be featured on social media and receive a monetary award.
