Opportunities for Students

While you are applying to graduate programs, we also encourage you to take advantage of programs that may help you build your professional network or develop skills that will help you succeed in graduate school. Some IGEN Partners hold conferences and workshops that may help you develop your network or provide opportunities to get support while developing your graduate application. Other IGEN partners may provide internship opportunities or scholarships/fellowships. Explore our partner opportunities to learn more.
