The Division of Graduate Studies has announced a Graduate Deanâ€™s Award for newly admitted graduate applicants for their contribution to diversity in their discipline or program at Kent State. The Graduate Deanâ€™s Award seeks to attract and retain highly qualified graduate students from underrepresented groups and serves as a supplement to the assistantship stipend provided by academic programs.
Ten Graduate Deanâ€™s Awards will be offered each year to selected full-time (20 hour per week) graduate assistants. Each recipient will be awarded $5,000 over two years. Recipients in one-year masterâ€™s programs will receive $2,500 distributed over the course of the year. No services or duties beyond those required of the assistantship are expected.
Nominations must be initiated by an applicantâ€™s academic program. The priority deadline for nominations is March 1, but nominations will be accepted through June 15, depending on availability of funds. Programs will be notified of the outcome by March 15 and are required to notify Kate McAnulty, director of Graduate Student Services, by April 15 whether or not the recipient accepted the offer.
