COGS Graduate Student Event Grants are intended to support the development of intellectual and social community across graduate disciplines and among graduate students at different stages in their studies. Grants must be used for a single event or a series of related events that occur within the same semester. These events must be open to and marketed to all graduate students.
COGS New Program Development Grants provide two semesters of funding for events or programs that are intended to be repeated over multiple semesters or years. These grants are intended to help groups demonstrate the viability of their events and provide support as alternate sources of funding are established for future events.
Student Group Development Grants are intended for new graduate student groups that do not yet receive Student Services Fees funding.
