Hands-on experience is invaluable to a graduate student’s professional development. To better enable these critical opportunities, the College of Arts and Sciences and University Graduate School have joined together to sponsor the Graduate Pathways Fellowship.
For graduate students on non-academic career paths, unpaid and underpaid internships can be crucial for professional development. The Graduate Pathways Fellowship provides support to graduate students while they participate in these opportunities, allowing them to apply the theories and practical skills they have acquired in the College to gain relevant work experience. This fellowship opportunity includes up to $20,000 in stipend plus health insurance, in collaboration with the student’s internship employers.
Lydia Campbell-Maher and Micah Ling, Ph.D. students in the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology, have been named inaugural Graduate Pathways Fellows, in recognition of their academic success and professional aspirations.
