​The GradFirst Student Fellowship (GFF) program aims to support first generation graduate students who enroll in the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences graduate programs affiliated with the Urban Collaborative (UC). While earning their degree, Fellows will also work as research assistants under the guidance of the GradFirst Faculty Advisor. In this capacity, Fellows will conduct literature reviews, data collection, data management, and analysis, including the creation of data visualizations, in support of faculty projects. Fellows will also take part in UC sponsored events, including trainings, talks, and small group discussions with faculty and their peers.
