How You Can Get Involved
Our services have the potential to be life-changing for graduate students. The National Grad Crisis Line intervenes in the darkest hours of a student’s life. Our articles and references give practical advice for tackling the issues of graduate life while distance mentoring offers a one-on-one opportunity for students to receive practical and personal direction from others in their field. However, Grad Resources operates by building partners at each university to raise awareness of services. You can join our mission in several ways.
Become A donor
We are supported financially by private donors and corporate sponsors. Thanks to these individuals, we are able to make our services available without any cost to graduate students or their universities. We can’t express our appreciation enough for those who have donated over the years. Click here to learn how to become a financial partner.
Become a Mentor
Our distance mentoring program is looking for volunteers to help other graduate students just like yourself. Student contact us weekly asking for help navigating advisor relationships, help writing their dissertation or just needing a listening ear. The program involves communicating with students via email or phone a few hours per month.
