The Graduate School has a goal to strategically grow interdisciplinary graduate programs in niche areas and provide funding to doctoral students to ensure that UTSA is able to achieve and maintain NRUF and Carnegie R1 research designation.
Your gift will enable UTSA to recruit the highest quality research faculty and students to produce research and scholarship that will establish UTSA’s reputation as a premier research institution, and increase its national and international reputation and rankings, while also greatly benefiting the San Antonio community and partners.
Gifts for The Graduate School help recruit top students who are working on critical discoveries, like Courtney, a third year Ph.D. candidate in cell and molecular biology who is doing brain health research related to the COVID-19. As she looks to the future, this native New Yorker and U.S. Army Reserve captain is also reflecting on the help from generous organizations that have provided her scholarship and fellowship support along the way. “I would like to thank them for their support and for realizing how important research in brain health is,” she said. “And I love that they are giving to rising researchers. … We are always going to need more scientists, so anybody who is helping to encourage early career scientists is very important.” Read more about Courtney's work.
