Welcome to TheGradwell

Gradschool success is more than taking classes. Navigate gradschool with a supportive community.

About Us


The GradWELL by Navcap is a career development collective connecting  Black & LatinX doctoral students to strategic planning resources, mentors, tutors, and coaches for success while attending predominantly white institutions (PWIs). Our sweet spot is supporting PhD/EdD students in their first three years (pre-dissertation stage) of their grad school journey.

We know that the percentages of Black and LatinX graduate students attending PWIs is growing, and we also know that the breadth of resources does not always match the need. The GradWELL community provides academic, personal, and career-focused guidance specifically from individuals who understand their multidimensional needs AND who have walked in their shoes.

Traditional approaches for graduate student success are designed for a majority and miss the mark for culturally diverse and historically underserved students. 

Join our community to connect, collaborate, and draw from our collective resources designed to position you for success.
