The Office of Graduate Education and Life strives to promote a positive, professional, and successful educational experience for graduate and professional students from the various academic colleges and programs across WVU. Our team assists with many of the unique challenges they encounter as graduate and professional students. Our professional development workshops and various events prepare students for success academically as well as transitioning into their profession . Our office also manages and promotes scholarships, fellowships, and graduate assistantship opportunities that make graduate education possible and affordable for many graduate and professional students.
Why we need your support
Support of the Office of Graduate Education and Life will further enable OGEL to assist graduate and professional students with unexpected and documented financial emergencies/crises. Such financial support allows the students to remain focused on their academic pursuits leading to degree completion and graduation. Such financial support will further develop and enhance the Dr. Robert E. Stitzel Emergency Fund for graduate and professional students, a fund named for the former WVU Director of Graduate Studies who served from 1991-2007.
