The Colorado Diversity Initiative offers professional development opportunities to historically underserved doctoral students in science, math, and engineering. Students may request funds to present their research at a conference or meeting, or to engage in another training activity that furthers their academic careers. Requests for funding are accepted throughout the year.underserved doctoral students

The Colorado Diversity Initiative also facilitates a community of peers among historically underserved doctoral students. Planned luncheons and other events allow students from all science, math, and engineering departments the opportunity to meet, socialize, and share their experiences.

The Graduate School at CU Boulder also has professional development opportunities for graduates.
