Promote your events

Advertise your events to encourage broad participation.

Required for all grants:

  • Use the OGE logo, which is sent to you by the Grants Fellow, on all related publicity. If your publicity is in the form of a text-only e-mail, you may include the phrase “Sponsored by the Office of Graduate Education” rather than using the image.
  • Document your events and share with us. Please note that any photographs and videos submitted to OGE may be used by OGE without restriction.
  • Collect data and demographics for your report. All grant authors are required to report on their events, which includes a summary of each event including but not limited to budgeting, descriptions, and demographic data (number of grad students and their department affiliation, etc.) on attendees.

Options for publicizing your project include the following:

The Anno

The Anno is a weekly announcement e-mail that goes to the entire graduate student community on a weekly basis.  Messages may only be sent out once to the community. You may submit announcements for upcoming events, activities, and programs that apply to the entire graduate student community. Advertizing in the Anno is a requirement for grants that fund events open to the entire graduate student community.

Websites and social media

If you are affiliated with a department or student group, publicize on their website or social media account.

Email lists

Take some time to identify all the e-mail lists that might want to hear about your event.

Infinite Corridor poster and digital displays

If you create designs to announce an upcoming event, consider postering and using digital displays along the route used by other student groups.

The fixed poster display cases in the Infinite Corridor may be reserved by members of the MIT community (see scheduling website for more information). Poster dimensions must be vertical, 11 x 17″; paper should be 65# or heavier cover stock. For more information see the MIT Events and Information Center (7-121, 617-253-4795,
