COVID-19 and GRIP

We are still accepting applications for the Summer 2020 Graduate Research Intensive Program (GRIP). Should circumstances change, we will post information here.

GRADUATE RESEARCH INTENSIVE PROGRAM (GRIP)

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

The Graduate Research Intensive Program (GRIP), offered during the summer, is an in-depth two-week workshop *open to graduate students only* 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 3-14th 2020, Monday - Friday from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm in the Atlanta campus library.

Instructor: Raeda K. Anderson, Ph.D.

Cost: $40.

Application process: **APPLY HERE** All interested graduate students should complete an application by July 1, 2020. 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.

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