Workshops for graduate and professional students

Currently-enrolled UNC-Chapel Hill graduate and professional students seeking fellowships, dissertation support, research grants, travel, and other awards are welcome to attend our funding information workshops. We provide general instruction on getting the most out of our online databases and resources.

Unless otherwise noted, all regularly-scheduled workshops are held in the Health Sciences Library, room 307. Wait-listed students are welcome to attend but are not guaranteed access to a lab computer during the presentation.

Identifying funding sources workshops

In lieu of in-person workshops, the Graduate Funding Information Center has recorded a virtual workshop.

Scheduling a custom workshop

GFIC research assistants are available to conduct workshops for graduate courses, departments, and graduate student organizations at UNC-Chapel Hill. Please e-mail the Graduate Funding Information Center to schedule a workshop for your group.

For more information about databases and what resources are available to you as graduate students, we have the following worksheets:
