Learn About Stanley Grants at ‘Speakeasy for Stanley’ Nov. 29

November 23rd, 2011

As you travel far and wide (or not) for Thanksgiving, remember that there is an opportunity for you to travel farther and wider still: with a Stanley Grant, which offers UI grad students up to $2500 for international research.

On Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 9 p.m., come down to Sanctuary for a special Speakeasy for Stanley, where your colleagues and recent Stanley Grant recipients Kendra Greene, Lucas Mann, Inara Verzemnieks and Mieke Eerkens will offer us exciting tales of (research-based) adventure across the globe.

And if hearing about the overseas adventures of your peers makes you excited for a (research-based) adventure of your own, check out the Stanley Grant workshop the following day, Nov. 30, from 12-1 p.m. in International Commons, 1117 UCC (in the Old Capitol Mall).
