Fellows Forum

Learn New Skills, Meet New People.

Want to expand your academic skills while building your Stanford network over a healthy meal? Fellows Forum is designed for early-mid stage doctoral students, especially those in STEM fields, with priority given to Stanford Graduate Fellows in Science and Engineering (SGF Fellows) and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellows (NSF Fellows).

Learning Objectives

At each Fellows Forum, you will:

  • learn and practice skills to enhance your academics
  • be exposed to many campus resources
  • meet other doctoral students from across campus

Program Description

The Fellows Forum’s skill-building workshops are designed to address the specific academic and professional development needs of early-mid stage doctoral students in the natural and social sciences, education, engineering, and mathematics. Topics include communication, mentoring, teaching, poster presentation, data visualization, and more. Each session stands alone, so you can register for one or all – whatever meets your needs and schedule.

Each workshop is followed by an informal, networking reception where you can meet other graduate students from around campus over healthy refreshments and, frequently, practice the skills you learned. The Fellows Forum is an excellent way to expand your Stanford network.

Fellows Forum is designed for early-mid stage doctoral students but is open to all enrolled graduate students. Space is limited. If over-enrolled, priority will be given to SGF and NSF Fellows.
