GRADUATE RESEARCH INTENSIVE PROGRAM

Where GSU’s early-career scholars go to get a GRIP on research skills.

The Graduate Research Intensive Program is an in-depth two-week workshop open to graduate students at Georgia State University to brush up on research skills (see topics below). The purpose of the program is simple: to help graduate students develop and polish their research skills to benefit themselves in graduate school and in their future careers.

Date: August 5-16, 2019, Monday - Friday from 10 am to 4 pm in the Atlanta campus library.

Instructor: Raeda K. Anderson, Ph.D. (with potential guest instructors for selected content)

Cost: $25 for current GSU graduate students and incoming graduate students.

Application process: All interested graduate students will apply by July 1st (APPLICATIONS CLOSED). Up to 25 applicants will be accepted into the program. All applicants will be notified of acceptance or placement on the waitlist by July 5th. Applicants will need to accept their spot by July 10th, or the spot will be forfeited to a waitlisted graduate student. Every graduate student who completes GRIP will receive a certificate of completion from Dean Jeff Steely.

Questions? Direct questions to Dr. Raeda Anderson (randerson39@gsu.edu).
