When UGA graduate student applicants were surveyed as to where they heard about UGA, faculty were listed as the 2nd most common source. Potential students are very interested in and value connecting with faculty from their area of interest. This page lists recruitment information specifically for faculty.
Recruitment Enhancement Grants
The Graduate School offers financial assistance to departments in the form of Recruitment Enhancement Grants that provide funds directly to support recruitment efforts. This is a proposal driven process in which departments individually develop, implement, and assess strategic recruitment plans. If awarded, the funds can be used to pay for a variety of recruitment endeavors including but not limited to bringing students to campus, hosting an Open House, paying for registration fees and travel to graduate recruitment fairs, and the creation of marketing materials, to name a few. The call for proposals is announced early in the fall semester.
