For the past four years, GSAS students have had the opportunity to take part in various activities during January@GSAS. This winter session (from Monday, January 9th through Friday, January 20th, 2017) offers topical workshops and seminars related to building research and professional skills, and a number of non-academic activities, such as service projects and sports tournaments, are also offered.

The Graduate Student Council's contribution to January@GSAS are Mini-Courses! We provide generous financial support, up to $750 per course, for graduate students to create the two-week course of their dreams. Courses can be related to a student's research interests, or his or her personal talents and pleasures may direct the organization of the course. In the past, the GSC was able to offer support for mini-courses covering topics in art, literature, math and science. This year, we yet again ask interested students to submit their ideas for a January mini-course. Applications are due by November 18, 2016.

To see what other activities are going to be available through GSAS, please see the January@GSAS home page.
