Graduate Student FundIn order to support graduate student growth and development, ASHE established the Graduate Student Travel Scholarship program in 2008 and as of 2019, had awarded more than 50 scholarships. In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we raised nearly $16,000 from members and conference attendees for this scholarship! These funds provided free conference registration for every graduate student who indicated financial need during the registration process.
