Preview Weekend


Explore our PhD and Bridge Master's Programs
October 20-22, 2022


The Applied Physics Program invites juniors, seniors, and masters level students who are a US citizen, permanent resident, or a DACA recipient, and are pursuing graduate school, to attend our Preview Weekend in person this fall. A collaboration with the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA) and Rackham Graduate School, the event is meant to be an opportunity to experience the vitality of the campus, meet faculty and potential graduate student peers, attend courses and seminars, and visit research labs to learn about our programs. Covered costs include roundtrip airfare/train/bus ticket, ground transportation from airport to Ann Arbor, and hotel stay for duration of event. Meals are also provided. 

We welcome applications from those who have outstanding academic qualifications, show exceptional potential for scholarly success in a graduate program, and demonstrate promise for contributing to wider academic, professional, or civic communities.

  • come from an educational, cultural or geographic background that is underrepresented in graduate study;
