Office of Interdisciplinary Studies Funding Opportunities For Grad Students (2.25.19)

February 4, 2019
By: Office of Interdisciplinary Studies

The Office of Interdisciplinary Studies is offering 2 funding opportunities to graduate students:

  • Duke Support for Interdisciplinary Graduate Networks (D-SIGN): The goal of this internal grant competition is to enable graduate students to build or extend their networks and to integrate collaborative, cross-school experiences into their programs, thereby increasing the number of individuals whose graduate training reflects the university’s signature commitments to interdisciplinarity and knowledge in the service of society. We believe such experiences will lead to better preparation/training, whether for academic positions or other career trajectories.
  • Graduate Student Training Enhancement Grants(G-STEG): The goal of this grant competition is to expand the opportunities for graduate students to “step away” from their core research and training, so as to acquire additional skills, knowledge, or experiences outside/beyond their discipline that are not available at Duke and that will enhance their capacity to carry out original research. We believe such experiences will lead to better preparation/training, whether for academic positions or other career trajectories.  Supported activities include: an internship related to field of research; cognate training workshop; or field work opportunity that includes specific training.)  NOTE: Grant funds may not be used for attendance at conferences, nor for internships by Masters students. We also encourage potential applicants to consult the 2019 Summer Doctoral Academy offerings to see if those short-courses can address their needs.

Application Deadline: Feb. 25, 2019.
