Graduate Student Resources

The Sociology Department is fortunate to have many wonderful scholars. Here are some resources for our graduate researchers.

Sociology graduate students often search for and are awarded several types of grants and fellowships beyond the Graduate Assistant Stipend and Fee Waiver. Here is a short list of available resources.

Please note that this list is subject to change and funding availability.

UCONN Connections – Centers, Departments & Institutes

Our graduate students and faculty often are connected to cultural centers, departments, and institutes across UCONN. Attendance or affiliation is found in varying capacities such as program attendees, volunteers, Teaching Assistants or Instructors, interdisciplinary study, research work and more.

Additionally, some graduate students seek specialty certificates through non-sociology departments or centers. Popular certificate programs include the Feminist Studies Certificate Program (WGSS), Human Rights Certificate Program (HRI), Graduate Certificate in College Instruction and Quantitative Research Methods Certificate Program.
