EEB Scholars Preview Weekend
As a part of efforts to increase diversity and accessibility to graduate studies in ecology and related fields, the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University is offering a special preview weekend – the EEB Scholars Program – this upcoming October 4th-7th for students considering graduate school. The goal of this prestigious weekend program is to invite competitive prospective graduate applicants to campus in order to showcase the department, demystify the graduate application process, and highlight participants' research experience. We especially encourage students from underrepresented minority groups and those inhabiting other axes of underrepresentation in STEM to apply. Students attending Minority Serving Institutions (such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, and Tribal Colleges and Universities), first-generation students, and undocumented students are particularly invited to apply.
Please see https://eeb.princeton.edu/graduate/eeb-scholars-program for more information. The application deadline is July 15, 2018. The EEB Scholars Program is open to all prospective graduate students, including rising juniors and seniors, as well as international applicants, especially those from developing nations. Travel, food, and lodging expenses will be covered by Princeton EEB.
Please direct any questions to EEB.Scholars@princeton.edu. We look forward to your application!
Applicants should be interested in pursuing a PhD Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, or a related field (e.g. conservation, behavioral ecology, genetics) and have research experience as appropriate for their current position (e.g. undergraduate, Masters, etc).
Please see https://eeb.princeton.edu/graduate/eeb-scholars-program for more information and the full application form. The application requires a personal statement, CV, transcript, and two letters of recommendation.
