Leadership Lab: Focus Your Future Through Fellowship Applications
Friday, November 15, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (CST)
This workshop will explore the many non-monetary benefits of applying for fellowships and grants throughout graduate school and will help students think about how fellowships can aid their future career objectives regardless of whether or not their careers lead them to academia. Topics will include the benefits that come from the process of applying fellowships, training opportunities that fellowships provide, and prestige that transfers to academic, industry, and non-profit worlds.
