The Council of Graduate Schools is conducting a new, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) on research ethics in international collaborations. The project brings together two areas of CGS best practice research, scholarly and research integrity and graduate international collaborations, to better prepare graduate students to navigate the complex issues that arise in the context of international research. For more information please visit the project webpage.
CGS was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to study international collaborations in graduate education, including joint- and dual-degrees and student and faculty exchange programs. Findings from the project have provided institutional leaders and faculty with strategies for successful creation and participation in international collaborative opportunities, especially in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. Please visit the project webpage for more information on research data, project-related presentations, resources, and other useful information about graduate international collaborations.
As the national advocate for graduate education, CGS serves as a resource for policymakers and others on issues concerning graduate education, research, and scholarship. Based in Washington, DC, the organization provides its members with regular updates and analyses of legislative and regulatory proposals and policies that affect graduate education.
