It's never too late to identify or revise any short and long term goals that will contribute to your growth and success. Consider using a template such as an individual development plan (IDP), which can help you outline your academic, professional, and interpersonal goals. It can also help you see the progress you've made and the milestones you've achieved. The IDP is a living document. As your goals change, you should revise the IDP as needed. Once you've done a draft, feel free to use the document to guide your advising meetings or check-ins with faculty, mentors, or staff if needed. Here a few examples (that can be tailored for Master’s and Doctoral levels):
It's always a good time to research various funding opportunities that you may be eligible for, including funding for graduate study, conferences, research, as well as employment.
