The Graduate Center is pleased to offer an award to support your participation in a professional development opportunity of your choice. The award will provide reimbursement of up to $150 to offset the cost of registration. Funds are to help subsidize opportunities that individuals have already committed to and paid for; therefore, a copy of the paid registration is required as part of the application. Examples of professional development include, but are not limited to, training or certification programs, conferences, webinars or workshops, coding bootcamps, and career resources such as LinkedIn Premium. In-person and online opportunities are acceptable. Please note that funding is limited and therefore will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis to those who meet the eligibility criteria.
