September 25-27, 2009
Arizona State University
The School of Social and Family Dynamics (http://www.asu.edu/ssfd) at Arizona State University is proud to host the third annual Professional Development Conference for Undergraduate Seniors Interested in Graduate Training in Family and Child Sciences.
This conference is designed to bring together eager and bright students to learn about the exciting changes and facets of research-oriented graduate training in family and child sciences. Undergraduate students from across the country who will be seniors next year and who plan to pursue doctoral graduate education in a discipline related to family and child sciences (child development, family studies, psychology, sociology, education, life sciences, etc.) will be brought together on campus for a weekend of discussions about preparation for graduate school, where the field is going, opportunities for interdisciplinary research and education, and general discussions with faculty and graduate students in the field.
This competitive conference will allow students to learn more about the profession, develop networks of faculty and students from across the country, and help prepare themselves for graduate school and beyond.
Students who are selected to attend will be provided with funding to pay for all travel-related expenses (airfare, local transportation, hotel, and meals). Students will attend interactive discussion sessions over the course of the 2 days of the conference. Opportunities for socializing and individual sessions will also be provided.
