Prasad 's research projects

Graduate Student Conference Award

Professional and scholarly conferences are key avenues for presenting one’s research out to the larger community. In addition to sharing knowledge and learning more about the work done by fellow researchers, such conferences also play a key role in graduate students’ professional development. This project will assist students to offset several costs associated with presenting at conferences.

Career Networking Initiative

As students graduate and enter the workforce, there are certain skills that are necessary in order for them to have a successful career, such as communication and networking. Being able to communicate effectively and develop strong networks is highly sought by potential employers. Travel grants are intended to help graduate students develop these vital skills before they enter the workforce.
