In light of COVID-19 and the rapid changes and transitions to new ways of learning and living, the Graduate Student Engagement Fund Committee will be extending the April 1 deadline to May 1. Please view the announcement and check your inbox for a Pratt Communicator.  All other inquires can be directed to gsef@pratt.edu.

We extend our best to you and your loved ones in this challenging time. Stay safe and be well.

The Graduate Student Engagement Fund makes grants to individual graduate students, and to small student teams, proposing research-based scholarly and/or creative projects that will enhance students’ professional development and that will—through meetings, events, or other mechanisms that disseminate or share the work—enrich the greater Pratt community.
