    • 2019 Biophysics PhD Preview at the University of Michigan, October 13-14, 2019

      Want an all-expenses paid trip to visit Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan?

      We are currently accepting applications for our second annual PhD Preview! Approximately 6 highly qualified prospective graduate students will be invited to Ann Arbor for an all-expense-paid trip to experience the Biophysics Program at the University of Michigan. Highly qualified prospective graduate students are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to students from low-income homes, students who are first-generation college students or students whose backgrounds are underrepresented in Academia.

      Applicants must be U.S. Citizens or permanent residents or undocumented students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). All applicants must intend to apply for admission to the Biophysics doctoral program for the 2020-21 academic year.

      Throughout the Preview days students will have the opportunity to network with important members of the Biophysics research community here at Michigan and get a first-hand look at what life is like as a graduate student and member of a thriving scientific laboratory.

      Biophysics Preview participants will attend the annual Biophysics All-Team Retreat on the Monday of their visit (October 14).
