This message is to notify you about our temporary suspension of the following grant applications, effective May 18, 2020:


- Professional Development Grant (PDG)

- Professional Membership Grant (PMG)

- Special Purpose Grant (SPG)


While we fully understand that the suspension of these applications during this period may cause inconvenience, we assure you that we are working towards reopening them as quickly as possible.  Due to the overwhelming volume of requests that are being handled at this time, we will need sufficient time to address the applications which have already been received. We wish to be equitable to those who have submitted applications weeks/months prior and prioritize the urgency of those responses.  Any applications submitted on or after May 18, 2020 will not be reviewed/acknowledged until the application period reopens. Once all of the previous requests are addressed and complete, we will resume accepting new applications and send out a notification.


Once again, we want to reiterate that we are working diligently to offer a variety of support services to all graduate students, and decisions such as these are always made in the best interest of students.  We appreciate your kind understanding and support.


For more information on the service interruption, please contact
