Career Fellows Program
The Brandeis GSAS Spring Career Fellowship is open to all PhD and master's GSAS students. This fellowship gives GSAS students across all disciplines skills to help them prepare for careers in academia, non-profits, industry and beyond. The goal of the program is to foster a community of students committed to planning for their post-MA or PhD future. We also hope that fellows act as ambassadors who encourage a robust discussion on professional and career development in their departments. As a part of this cohort, we encourage robust discussion on professional and career development through programming and via Slack.
This year, we had 84 total applicants for the fellowship!
Our fellows will attend career development and job search activity seminars between February and May 2023, and are awarded a $400 stipend for participating. Topics include:Getting Started with Career Exploration
Training and Research Opportunities at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
