Graduate Student Support Fund

This fund helps support the Graduate Preparation Academy (GPA) is designed to prepare undergraduate students for admission and study at the graduate level. The GPA provides undergraduate students interested in pursuing a graduate degree with intensive graduate school preparation. Students selected to participate in the graduate school preparation academy will be provided with information and resources about participating in academic research, engaging with faculty mentors, preparing academically for graduate school, assistance with scholarship and fellowship opportunities, and graduate education entrance examinations through interactive speakers, panels, and workshops.

We offer a rigorous academic program that prepares students for the opportunities and challenges that face them in post-baccalaureate education. Participants are connected with a faculty member who will offer mentoring throughout the graduate school application process, feedback on essays, and other application materials. Participants are encouraged to participate in regional and national academic conferences to present their academic research.
