Building a Template for Graduate Funding Opportunities

The purpose of this forum is to assist graduate students in identifying potential funding resources for research. Participants will work together to build a spreadsheet that identifies a variety of funding opportunities in geography (e.g., physical and human geography, and GIS) and fill in associated necessary elements of the funding application.

Rachael ArneyRachel Arney, University of Georgia

Rachel Arney is a third-year PhD student in the Integrative Conservation and Geography programs at the University of Georgia. She is excited to lead the GSAG Summer Series and provide fellow graduate students an opportunity to develop as young professionals in geography. She encourages all graduate students to attend the summer workshops, especially those who have been most impacted and isolated from the pandemic, as we will have an opportunity to create teaching portfolios and funding templates. As an Instructor of Record and Teaching Assistant herself, Rachel is uniquely prepared to guide graduate students in their academic development.
