Fall Preview: Explore a Michigan PhD
October 31-November 2, 2019
The 2020 application will open July 6, 2020. Dates for the 2020 Fall Preview will be announced when the application opens.
The Earth and Environmental Sciences PhD program invites juniors, senior, recently graduated, or Master’s students, to visit us for a preview of our graduate program. We are eager to recruit students for this event who will contribute to our department's mission of promoting diversity and inclusion in the Earth and environmental sciences.
This event is an all expenses paid opportunity to explore graduate education, participate in admissions workshops, meet world-renowned faculty and current graduate students, and get a taste for life in Ann Arbor. During your visit you'll learn about
- state of the art research happening at U-M
- the admissions process
- what graduate school is like and how it all works
- interdisciplinary opportunities for students with Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geology, or Mathematics degrees
Please apply if you are a US citizen or permanent resident, and you come from a background that is traditionally under-represented in the Earth and environmental sciences and/or if you actively work towards promoting issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in STEM fields. DACA students are also encouraged to apply. This Preview event is specifically designed to recruit students for the UM Rackham Merit Fellowship. For more information about the RMF program and who is eligible, please consult the RMF website.
