GradStarter is designed to help fund pilot projects that are innovative, promote academic achievement, and intellectually engage Rice graduate students and postdocs in your program and beyond.

GradStarter has funded several student-driven projects, such as the BRC Innovation Symposium, the Vagantes Conference, and the Ethnography Salon, to name a few. These projects creatively brought together students, postdocs, and scholars from diverse backgrounds to forge new connections while promoting academic and professional development.
