Departmental Development Funds

  • The GSA allocates a certain percentage of its annual budget to funding department-specific events such as conferences, workshops, symposia, and speaker series. This percentage is split evenly across all sixteen graduate programs, and the available amount of funding per department for academic year 2018-2019 is $3,000.
  • Students interested in applying for departmental development funds (DDF) should contact their respective GSA representative. In addition to an estimated budget, the applicant must submit a 100-150 word advertisement of the event, which will be promoted through the GSA in anticipation of the event.
