Graduate education is a stepping stone to a professional career, and at the Laney Graduate School, we encourage our students to be intentional in their career planning. With the generous support of annual donors like you, the Laney Graduate School offers an innovative suite of professional development and career-planning programming to help our students both sharpen and broaden their professional skills, explore careers, and manage job searches.

When you make your gift you help the Laney Graduate School provide resources including:

Professional Development Support (PDS) Funds to help students acquire specialized training not offered at Emory and travel to professional conferences where they present their research and develop professional networks

• A Grant Writing Program that addresses every stage of proposal writing from developing fundable projects to tailoring proposals to specific funders

• The annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition where students hone their presentation skills and present their research to non-specialist audiences

Seminars about teaching and pedagogy where students gain more insight into best practices, new technologies, and contemporary pedagogy

• The Pathways Beyond the Professoriate series, which connects students to alumni who have chosen career paths outside of academia

At the Laney Graduate School, we are fortunate to have alumni and friends who believe in the work we are doing today to prepare tomorrow’s intellectual and professional leaders. Please make your gift today for your shared commitment to the success of our graduate students.
