- Coffee & Conversation with CURF
Friday, September 13, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Arch Building, Fireside Lounge (2nd Floor)
Don’t let the name mislead you – – Penn’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships, or CURF, works with graduate & professional students applying for nationally competitive fellowships!
CURF invites students in all Penn’s graduate schools to join us for coffee and conversation about applying for graduate fellowships at Penn. CURF will hold an open forum, complete with coffee, bagels, and assorted spreads. We’ll briefly discuss several fellowships that are particularly relevant to grad students (and that require institutional support). We’ll then open the conversation to invite questions about fellowship opportunities and the ways CURF and other campus resources can help you identify and apply for these opportunities. Please register at www.gsc.upenn.edu/events
