Thank you for your interest in giving to the Graduate College of Drexel University. The college was established in 2015 to meet the need for an increased focus on Drexel’s already comprehensive graduate programs and to enhance the graduate student experience across the University.

We are committed to a range of strategic initiatives that will enrich the many academic, interdisciplinary and experiential learning opportunities for which Drexel is recognized. Your gift will ensure the continued success and growth of graduate education now and in decades to come.

Contributions will support student-focused priorities including highly sought-after travel awards for students presenting their work at conferences nation-wide, as well as valuable professional development workshops and speakers. Both initiatives strengthen the academic, professional and personal goals of our students, preparing them to be leaders in their fields.

Conference Travel Awards

In the 2018-2019 Academic Year, we awarded more than 70 domestic travel subsidy awards totaling about $30,000 to help support current graduate students invited to present their work at national conferences and meetings, highlighting Drexel's R1 research enterprise. Students have represented Drexel, graduate studies and their research at prestigious conferences in cities across the country including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Nashville, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Francisco and Seattle. The Graduate College has established the Teck-Kah Lim Graduate Student Domestic Travel Award Fund to meet the demand for these valuable conference travel experiences.

Your support enables high-performing students to present their work to audiences of hundreds or even thousands; students gain experience and feedback, learn from their peers and even find potential career opportunities at these conferences, all of which contribute to the development of graduate programs across Drexel’s schools and colleges.

Please visit our travel awards page to find out more about some of the graduate awardees, their research and the conferences they've attended nationwide.

Professional Development

Drexel graduate students are certainly bright, highly-motivated, collaborative and full of innovative ideas for the future. Your support ensures their talent is complemented with the right professional development opportunities.  

Offering beneficial graduate opportunities and customizing professional development to meet student needs is a priority of the college. Following a university-wide assessment of graduate professional development needs, we are developing current and designing new programs that provide in-demand professional development for graduate students throughout all of Drexel’s programs.
