HDS Voices

HDS student Jason SmithThe Office of Career Services has been an incredible resource for me during my time at HDS. As an MTS student with PhD aspirations, I attended their panels on applying to doctoral programs. As a doctoral student, I have benefited enormously from their resources on fellowships and grant funding. —Jason Smith, ThD candidate
