The University of Chicago is now accepting applications for the Discover UChicago program, an expenses-paid visit weekend to be held October 26-28, 2017 for candidates traditionally underrepresented in their fields planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2017 for matriculation in the fall of 2018. This event combines workshops on applying to graduate school, individual meetings with faculty, and opportunities to connect with current UChicago students, as well as to explore the community and the city of Chicago.
Students interested in doctoral programs, as well as master’s programs in the majority of our schools and divisions, are encouraged to apply online by August 15, 2017. In particular, students from underrepresented backgrounds, first generation students, women in STEM fields, and undocumented students are invited to apply.
