2020 Diversity Fellows Program

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2020 workshop

 

 

The School of Biological Sciences’ 2nd annual Diversity Fellows Program event is set for November 7, 2020 and 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. The live workshop is by invitation only. Questions, please contact andy.sposato@utah.edu or thien.vu@utah.edu or School of Biological Sciences Graduate Program Office - (801) 581-5636.

The School of Biological Sciences Diversity Fellows Program assists 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. We solicit applications each fall and will post an application link when the application period is open.
