My name is Michael PeCoy, and I am the Graduate and Professional Student Government Grant Director for the 2021-22 academic year. I'm a first-year Marketing PhD student in the Tippie College of Business, and I completed my Undergraduate and Master's degrees here at Iowa. The University of Iowa and the Iowa City community have done so much for me in the past five years. I joined GPSG to give back and to serve the student body in any way that I can. As Grant Director, I plan to increase both grant and reviewer awareness and accessibility. I will continue to facilitate timely and frequent communication with all parties involved in the grant process. Perhaps most challenging, I hope to successfully incorporate a DEI component to all grant applications. Outside of my University activities, I enjoy walking, playing with, and going to the park with my dog.
