Successful Transition into Graduate School (STRINGS) is a year-long cohort program focused on helping Hispanic, African American, Asian American (including South-East Asian), first-generation, and/or returning students transition successfully into graduate school.

STRINGS, which is made possible by a U.S. Department of Education Title V Part B (PPOHA) grant, offers: 

  • mentorship and professional development opportunities,
  • monthly cohort meetings and year-long workshops to foster practices leading to successful graduate students, and
  • $500 in direct financial support.

In order to be eligible to participate in STRINGS, a student must:

  • be newly admitted into a Fresno State graduate program;
  • be a Hispanic, African American, Asian American (including South-East Asian), first-generation, and/or returning student (returning students are defined here as those with a lengthy break between undergraduate and graduate studies);
