The Center for the Study of Origins (CSO) supports a research program for graduate students. The purpose of the program is to promote both the scholarship of outstanding graduate students pursuing the study of origins in their own disciplines and to provide interdisciplinary connections between their research and projects on origins in other disciplines. Applicants for a Graduate Research Award (GRA) (1) should currently be Ph.D. students at CU Boulder in good standing who have finished their course requirements for the Ph.D. and (2) must be sponsored by a CSO faculty member who agrees to mentor them on their origins related project.
