Dissertation Writing Retreats

Led by Dr. Amber Marchut, dissertation writing retreats offer an opportunity for doctoral candidates to have time, space, and support with their dissertation writing.

Research Support

There are three main sources of research-related funding available to graduate students. Small research grants (SRG) support research on any topic of academic significance using accepted research methods. These funds can be used for research equipment, to pay research participants, and for expenses associated with travel to collect data. The Graduate Student Research Travel Fund provides reimbursement for graduate students who travel to professional conferences to present their original research. The Graduate Student Association (GSA) also offers a travel assistance program, which provides reimbursement for students who attend professional conferences in their fields.

Notetaking Services

At the graduate level, any student can request notetaking regardless of disability. To request note-taking services, graduate students should ask each instructor to identify a student in the class who would be interested in a paid note-taking position. Please let Dr. Beth Gibbons (Email) know who is identified – or if you need additional assistance with finding a notetaker. Students interested in becoming a notetaker must complete a brief training and sign a notetaker contract for each course.
