Past Preview Weekend Details

Explore our PhD and Bridge Master's Programs
October 9, 2020

The Department of Statistics invites juniors, seniors, recently graduated students, and Master’s students to join us for a virtual preview event. We welcome applications from those who come from a background that is traditionally underrepresented in Statistics and/or if you actively work towards promoting issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM fields. This event is a collaboration with the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA) and Rackham Graduate School.

This event is an opportunity to explore graduate education at Michigan, 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 

  • program funding

  • what graduate school is like and how it works


Preview Weekend events are open to domestic (U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival status) undergraduate juniors, seniors, recent graduates or master’s students 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. 

If you are interested in exploring our PhD and Bridge Master's programs, but do not meet the eligibility criteria to participate in Fall Preview Weekend, please reach out to us at! We would be happy to answer your questions regarding the application process and academic life in the department.


Please note that the application includes submission of a CV/resume, a current unofficial transcript, and the names and contact information of at least one recommender. It is advised you submit your application sooner than later to ensure your recommenders have enough time to complete the recommendation form ahead of the deadline.
