2013 Graduate and Professional Student Development Committee Award
The 2013 Graduate and Professional Development Committee Award provides funding for graduate students and postdocs to attend the Annual POD conference which will be held November 6-10, 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The Professional Organizational Development Network in Higher Education’s Committee of Graduate and Professional Student Development (GPSD) announces a Reduced POD Conference Registration Fee Award for ten (10) advanced graduate students and postdocs across disciplines and professional schools to attend the annual conference. This year’s program – “Freedom to Connect — Freedom to Risk — Freedom to Learn” – will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from November 6-10, 2013.
Ten awardees will pay only $50 toward conference registration/POD membership fees. (Several meals are included in this fee.) All other travel and hotel fees will be born by the student or his/her sponsoring university. Awardees will be expected to attend the GPSD Breakfast at POD, which takes place 7:30-8:45 a.m. on Saturday, November 9, 2013.
Each applicant will be judged by two members of the Graduate and Professional Student Development Committee (members listed below), based on demonstrated commitment to teaching and learning, and demonstrated relevance of the conference to future career plans. The committee also seeks to make awards to a diverse pool of PhD-granting institutions. Previous GPSD awardees will not be eligible.
Interested applicants should submit the documents listed below via email attachment to Katie Linder, email@example.com, current Co-Chair of the GPSD Committee, by Friday, August 2, 2013, 5 pm EST.
