The Graduate School Receives CGS Subaward

Loyola University Chicago has been selected by the Council of Graduate Schools to receive a highly competitive subaward of $48,000 for use over 30 months (August 2021-January 2024), to support the development and improvement of programs that directly impact humanities PhD students. Responding to the proposal submitted by Dean Emily Barman of The Graduate School, Suzanne T. Ortega, President of CGS, wrote, "your proposal was among 10 selected for funding on the recommendation of an external committee based on the strength of the proposal and your institution's commitment in this area. Congratulations!"

The award is made possible by grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and will be invested to improve humanities doctoral programs following discussion and productive planning sessions between LUC and CGS project staff.
