The University of Chicago is now accepting applications for our Discover UChicago program, an expenses-paid visit weekend to be held October 20-22, 2016 for candidates traditionally underrepresented in their fields planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2016. This exciting 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 our community and the city of Chicago.
Students interested in doctoral programs in the arts and sciences, social service administration, and business, as well as master’s programs in the majority of our schools and divisions, are encouraged to apply online by August 15, 2016. In particular, students from underrepresented backgrounds, first generation students, and women in STEM fields are invited to apply. A full list of participating programs, as well as application requirements and additional guidance, may be found at grad.uchicago.edu/admissions/discover/.
We hope you will share the attached material with your students and colleagues and encourage them to Discover UChicago. Any questions may be directed to our office at gradadmissions [at] uchicago [dot] edu.
