Since its inception in 1993, the Graduate Student Summer Conference has been the flagship event of the SSRC's Mellon Mays Graduate Initiatives program. Mellon fellows in their first through third years of graduate school, along with graduating seniors who have been accepted into qualifying PhD programs, are eligible to attend; fellows may attend the event twice during their years of eligibility.
The 2017 Summer Conference will be held June 21-23 at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. The Summer Conference includes workshops and plenary sessions on successfully navigating graduate school and introduces fellows to the national community of MMUF fellows. For more information, please visit the SSRC's website. The MMUF-SSRC Graduate Initiatives Program covers the cost of travel, meals, and accommodations for the conference.
Please feel free to contact the SSRC staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about the conference. We look forward to seeing many of you in June!
