2020 Diversity Fellows Program


The School of Biological Sciences’ annual Diversity Fellows Program supports Fellows who are applying to Biology graduate programs. The Diversity Fellows 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 are welcome to apply. 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. We solicit applications each fall and will post an application link when the application period is open.

The School of Biological Sciences held a virtual Diversity Fellows workshop on November 7, 2020. At the virtual workshop, the Diversity Fellows worked on aspects of their applications to Biology graduate programs, or get resources to support their STEM careers. Supportive materials from the workshop can be found here (link). Questions, please contact or or School of Biological Sciences Graduate Program Office - (801) 581-5636.
