Market your events

Marketing your events is an important way to let others know about your project, especially your fellow graduate students.

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.

If you like, you may also include the “Grad friendly” logo on publicity.

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.

MIT Events Calendar

Contact the Grants administrator at gslg@mit.edu if you need assistance with posting.

Web site/FACEBOOK/INSTAGRAM

If you are affiliated with a department or student group, publicize on their website or social media account. Some grant authors have also found it useful to create their own web sites or social media presence, especially for those projects with a longer time horizon.

Email lists

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

Posters

If you create posters to announce an upcoming event, consider postering along the route used by other student groups. Contact gslg [at] mit.edu for a copy of a recommended postering route.
