Sponsored by IHS
The Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) is pleased to invite you to participate its Graduate Research Workshops this fall! These workshops are designed for graduate students that are currently pursuing a PhD or enrolled in a PhD program and actively preparing their research for publication and presentation. During these weekend-long programs, participants will have the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from peers and esteemed faculty mentors from a range of academic disciplines.
Faculty mentors will share insights and best practices for increasing each student’s likelihood of publication and students will have a chance to continue conversations with both mentors and peers over meals and receptions. In addition to honing research and presentation skills, these workshops also provide a chance for graduate students to network with one another and learn more about research being done by other aspiring academics.
The program is free to attend. IHS provides all materials, accommodations, and meals throughout the duration of the workshop. IHS also offers a generous travel stipend and $100 honorarium to help students attend the workshop.
Space is limited; apply by September 17, 2019.
