This page address GRO updates pertaining to events, meetings and GRO funding opportunities in response to COVID-19.

Last update: April 8, 2021

Status of Events:

GRO is now hosting several regular virtual social events, including: coffee hours, trivia, e-sports league, cooking nights, scotch nights, etc. Check out the GRO meetings & events page for more information.

Status of General Council Meetings:

The GRO General Council is continuing to meet virtually over zoom. View the the GRO meetings & events page for the most current information on the scheduling of General Council meetings in the midst of COVID-19.

Status of Funding (Conference Grants and Group Funding) for Fall 2020 & Spring 2021:

Given the current coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, we realize many conferences and meetings are being cancelled/postponed. In addition, JHU has announced that all non-essential university-sponsored travel is suspended. Any already allocated conference grants will be honored, as able and permitted by current University policies, and will be treated on a case by case basis.

With these considerations in place, GRO has re-opened applications for Conference Grants (previously known as “Travel Grants”) and Group Funding. Please view that page for policies and application information. Group funding applications are open and applications are evaluated on a rolling basis.
