2020 Diversity Fellows Program


The School of Biological Sciences’ 2nd annual Diversity Fellows Program is set for November 7, 2020. This program will assist Fellows with their applications to Biology graduate programs. Our program is looking for applicants who (1) identify with axes of diversity which have been historically excluded from STEM and (2) aim to enter a Biology graduate program within the next 1-3 years. We especially encourage applications from those who identify with marginalized communities. We aim to build a more equitable Biology community where people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, undocumented, and first-generation students are welcome and valued in scientific research. This year’s event will be virtual - no travel necessary. At the virtual workshop, the Diversity Fellows can work on aspects of their applications to Biology graduate programs, or get resources to support their STEM careers
