Funding your graduate education

Friday, August 18, 2017
11:30 AM - 4:00 PM

If you have not already registered via the LSAMP website (that registration is now closed), and if you would like to attend the 11:30 - 1 PM session for this workshop, please RSVP here, by clicking green "I can attend" button. 


Our speakers were winners of the 
NSF GRFP Fellowship (as graduate students), and now as educators, they have taken their winning method on the road. They have given workshops at Harvard, MIT, UMBC, Howard, the University of Puerto Rico, and other schools, and have collectively assisted students with earning millions of dollars in fellowship award money. Each NSF GRFP Fellowship is worth more than $100,000. Our speakers have helped to produce several winners. You can be one of them!
