The K-State community is invited to attend the annual Research and the State graduate student poster session on October 27 from 1:00-3:00pm in the K-State Student Union Courtyard. Over 30 graduate students from across campus will present posters of their research or scholarly work and share the implications their work has for citizens of K-State and topics of interest to state legislators. Ten presenters will be selected to represent K-State at the Capitol Graduate Research Summit in the spring.
We had some technical difficulties with the last brown bag talk on October 19 at 11:30am. You can find all brown bag presentations at the following link: https://www.k-state.edu/grad/faculty-resources/resources/deptinfo/. The Brown Bag series serves to facilitate communication and enhance collaboration between the Graduate School and graduate programs to support graduate student success.
The K-State Graduate School has scheduled a New Graduate Faculty Orientation event for those accepted into the Graduate Faculty during Academic Year 2020–21.

Please set aside one of two New Graduate Faculty Orientation meeting times to attend; October 20, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm or October 21, 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. The orientation will be held via Zoom video conference: https://ksu.zoom.us/j/94045803041.

Departments that wish to pay the application fee for graduate applicants may purchase fee waiver codes from the Graduate School. Purchased codes may be given to prospective students so that their application fee can be waived. Codes are available usually in minimum orders of 5 codes.

As the fall semester begins, please be sure to follow up with your students to make certain they have an approved program of study on file at the Graduate School. Full time students must file a program of study before the end of their second semester to ensure student success.
The Graduate School is now accepting applications for the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Small Grant Program to support research expenses for master's and doctoral students in these disciplines. Grants up to $1,000 will support direct research costs such as travel to an archive, data collection, or exhibition and performance expenses for graduate students doing original research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Funds will be available after Jan. 15, 2022.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a global leader in educational funding for women, awarding nearly $4 million annually to women scholars (graduate/professional degree students, postdocs, and faculty). The recipients conduct research and pursue study in a wide range of disciplines. The AAUW is currently accepting applications for several funding opportunities with application deadlines ranging from November 1-December 1, 2021.
The Graduate Student Council has video recordings posted for three professional development events held this semester. Students who were unable to attend the sessions live, are welcome to view the recordings and can also earn credit toward the GSC Professional Development Certificate. The next GSC professional development seminar is scheduled for November 5 and is offered in partnership with the Staley School of Leadership Studies: “Stories in Action: Developing a change narrative to navigate your uncertain and complex world.” Learn more about GSC professional development opportunities.
