WHO WE ARE

The Global Graduate Fellows Program (GradPrep) is a faith-based student incubator for thought, vision, and experience.

We offer workbooks, courses, and global leadership retreats to transition you to graduate school and your career.

"HELLO" FROM OUR FOUNDER

“I started this grassroots initiative with friends, back in 2003, when we were prospective graduate students.

Resources and scholarships were scarce for graduate study and I could barely pay bills.

This is part of my life’s work – to support you as you navigate your purpose with passion as well.

– Keisha Dawn Sowers, MPA

WE NEED YOUR HELP WITH STUDENT FOOD SECURITY ...

Did you know that 36% of university students and 42% of college students are food insecure? According to Feeding America, reasons include rising tuition costs, expensive meal plans, and family obligations. According to a Johns Hopkins study, food-insecure learners are about half as likely (43%) to graduate from college than their food-secure peers.

Help GradPrep by matching our annual funds to increase food security and ensure students are able to achieve their higher education goals.
