Academic and Career Development Workshops

Academic and career development is not one workshop or one course; it’s something you do throughout your time at the University of Minnesota, so get started now and stay committed to growing as a scholar and a researcher.

Fellowship Opportunities

The Graduate School administers a number of University-wide fellowships and grants for currently enrolled students, based on academic merit. Unlike a teaching assistantship or research assistantship, fellowships and grants generally do not require students to work.

Public & Community-Engaged Research

The Graduate School collaborates with multiple University units and academic departments to support graduate students interested in pursuing research or projects that engage with communities within and beyond the Twin Cities area.

Research in the College of Design
