Federal Government Shutdown: Guidance for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars

Graduate Studies is carefully monitoring the impact of the partial federal shutdown on graduate students and postdoctoral scholars supported by federal funding. We anticipate that new awards, funding increments, payments, and prior approvals will not be forthcoming from the impacted agencies under a shutdown. However, if you are applying for a grant, please submit your application by the deadline published in the funding opportunity announcement, regardless of the status of the government shutdown.

Grad Slam Registration Opens for 2019 Tournament

UC Grad Slam is an annual contest in which master’s and Ph.D. students across UC campuses – in disciplines ranging from hard sciences to humanities – compete to sum up their research for a general audience. Students should present the significance and fundamental points of their work at UC Davis in a clear, direct, and interesting manner.

Presentations should be no longer than three minutes in length and prepared for a diverse audience comprised of students, faculty, and community members. Judges will strongly consider clarity and effectiveness of the presentation by a general university audience.
