Historically Underserved Doctoral Students (HUDS) Affinity Group: Soft Skills Needed to Fund Your Research
Finding funding opportunities for your research is both an art and a science. In this conversation Dr. Leigh Mccue-weil will share her strategies to find research funding that may not always be obvious to everyone.
HUDS provides a welcoming and safe space for students who don’t always feel reflected or supported on campus or have faced or experienced social, economic, and historical challenges. The mission of the group is to bring doctoral and MFA students together and promote a sense of community through resource and information sharing and access to mentorship and networks that positively impact educational and career outcomes. The group also serves to increase access to critical services based on unique identities or specific needs. Finally, the HUDS Affinity Group names and addresses systemic issues that hinder the likelihood of educational success of Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, Indigenous, Biracial, Multiracial, Asian, Asian American, Pacific Islander, African students as well as working students with families, military and veteran students, and first-generation students. *This list is not exhaustive. If you face or have experienced marginalization, this group welcomes you!
