Programs & Research

Research plays a central role in graduate education and at the George Washington University, we support the research efforts of our graduate students and faculty. GW is home to more than 100 research centers and institutes, spanning the academic disciplines. Students work side-by-side with faculty mentors on cutting-edge research projects.

At GW, we continue to make substantial investments in our research facilities, most recently embodied by the opening of the Science & Engineering Hall, a state-of-the-art hub for research and learning.

Funding to graduate students is available through research assistant positions and research traineeships in academic departments with sponsored research grants.
