Our Community

SciMed GRS is one among several Graduate Research Scholar communities organized by the various schools and colleges within UW-Madison to support underrepresented students.  Students receiving Advanced Opportunity fellowships are brought together in GRS communities throughout their graduate school career for a range of social, academic, professional development, and research-related activities.

SciMed GRS strives to enhance the graduate school experience and connectedness of scholars in the program through community activities, outreach opportunities and professional development sessions. Take a look at profiles of SciMed GRS scholars and see what they have to say about their participation in the program:

  • “SciMed GRS has given me a sense of belonging. By being part of a small, but welcoming group of peers in my SciMed GRS cohort, I can ask questions, learn about other programs, and grow as both as a student and an individual.”
  • “SciMed GRS has been key in my graduate school experience. Belonging to a community of graduate student that are going through the same issues as me provides me with support and helps me stay motivated.”
  • “SciMed GRS has been one of the most valuable resources I have had during my time at UW-Madison. It helps me better understand the importance of organizing my time, and becoming a successful graduate student. SciMed has also helped me connect with individuals who I would not have otherwise met, and I’ve made important friendships.”
