OGPS makes marketing grants of up to $2000 each to Tulane's departments and programs that offer a non-professional terminal degree; e.g., PHD, MFA, or MArch. Because all terminal degree programs are valued, the grant program is not competitive. However, participating departments and programs are required to submit a short proposal to formally request the funds. Because funds are limited, departments and programs that include a plan to recruit underrepresented students will have priority in funding decisions.
Submit a brief one-page proposal with the following information:
Funds may be requested for one or both of the following activities. Please indicate how funds will be apportioned between the activities.
List the amount requested and how the funds will be expended. Grants are limited to $2,000.
Provide information on the graduate program you are marketing:
Proposals are due on October 15. The preferred mode of delivery is via e-mail in pdf format to Jennifer O'Brien at email@example.com. Hard copy proposals may be sent or delivered to 200 Gibson Hall.
Grants will be awarded by October 31 for the recruiting period. Please note that due to limited resources, the requested budgets may be adjusted upon award depending on the current number of graduate students in the program and/or total number of requests.
Departments and programs will be reimbursed for their incurred expenses. A brief summary of graduate recruiting activities should accompany the request for reimbursement (in the form of a "Departmental Correction" Electronic IT form). Submit Departmental Corrections to the OFFICE OF GRADUATE AND POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES by May 15.
Please be sure to email a copy of your reimbursement receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org, as well as include a copy on your electronic Departmental Correction.
Please direct questions to Jennifer O'Brien, Program Manager for the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, at email@example.com.
