The Graduate School Diversity Office (GSDO) leads and coordinates the University’s initiatives in the recruitment, funding, retention, and graduation of a diverse graduate and professional student body. Additionally, our office works closely with other organizations connected to diversity, underrepresented populations, and multiculturalism.

Your financial well-being is essential to your academic success. Fellowships, grants, research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and loans provide the most common forms of support for graduate students.
