Apply for Fall Preview

Explore a Michigan PhD
October 26-27, 2018

The Astronomy & Astrophysics Ph.D. program invites juniors, seniors, recently graduated students, and Master’s students to visit us for a preview event. We are eager to recruit students for this event who will contribute to our department's mission of promoting diversity and inclusion in the field of Astronomy and Astrophysics - Astronomy is for Everyone.

This event is a department-funded opportunity to explore graduate education, participate in admissions workshops, meet world-renowned faculty and current graduate students, and learn about life in Ann Arbor. During your visit, you'll learn about:

  • state of the art research happening at the University of Michigan
  • the admissions process 
  • what graduate school is like and how it works

Please apply if you come from a background that is traditionally underrepresented in Astronomy and Astrophysics and/or if you actively work towards promoting issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM fields. 

Selected participants will have the following funded:

  • Airfare (amount TBD after selection)
  • Lodging in Ann Arbor, October 25 and 26 
  • Ground transportation from Detroit Metro airport to Ann Arbor and back
  • Meals on the program itinerary (amount TBA after selection)
