The ASUN Graduate Student Assembly has announced the second application period of the Special Projects Grants Program, which supports professional development of graduate students at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Last semester we were able to support four projects, including a math exam writing workshop, a writing for publication workshop, a cyber-harassment hackathon, and a teacher training classroom project.

The ASUN Graduate Student Assembly is again awarding $2,500 in grants, up to $1,000 each, for activities, events or projects organized by graduate students that will take place over the summer. Examples of activities that we may support include research symposiums, educational field trips, visiting scholars, workshops and more.

Applications should be submitted online and will be assessed on a competitive basis following four criteria: impact, need for the project, preparation and financial need/co-sponsorship. Graduate students will need to submit a description, agenda and budget that describes how their proposed activity contributes to graduate student professional development, specifically addressing the four evaluation criteria. Applications will be reviewed by the GSA’s Committee for Professional Development. The deadline to apply is March 31, and awards will be announced by April 20.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact Chairwoman Maggi Sliwinski at
