The Graduate School will use your gift to support the research and creative endeavors of our hard-working graduate students. We regularly provide financial support to students to acquire the resources they need to advance their scholarly and creative projects, and also to help them fund trips to national conferences to present their results. We will also use your gift to support our 3 Minute Thesis competition, in which graduate students present their work in a way that is accessible to the general public.  The video above shows the presentation of Ball State's 2020 3 Minute Thesis winner, sociology student Amber Urban. She placed third in the Midwestern Association of Graduate School’s (MAGS) regional competition!  She competed against over 30 other regional institution winners!  Your gift can make a huge difference in the lives of our graduate students, and you can help them launch their academic and professional careers by supporting their research and creative endeavors during this formative time.
