Direct your gift to support The Graduate School Fund

Serving a diverse, engaged community of scholars

An international leader in graduate education, The Graduate School is also a partner, dedicated to serving and supporting our exceptional community of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and alumni. 

Gifts to The Graduate School help us fulfill this commitment to support each of these constituents — academically, professionally, and socially. Our vision for the future of graduate education at Northwestern is built on three main priorities:

  • Diversity — piloting and expanding new outreach efforts and targeted recruitment programs to attract students from underrepresented groups 
  • Service — providing our constituents with competitive funding packages, professional development, travel grants, mentoring, postdoctoral training, and more
  • Engagement — improving the work-life balance through social opportunities and creating connections through networking, community-building grants, and interdisciplinary clusters

Giving to The Graduate School Fund provides resources to seed new initiatives, meet pressing needs, and sustain our outstanding graduate education experience.
