We are excited to announce a graduate recruitment event in ecology, evolution, and environmental science at the University of Georgia. The event is being supported by the President's New Approaches Initiative to promote and institutionalize new ways to enhance diversity and promote an inclusive environment in the UGA Community. This project was initiated by the Odum School of Ecology and is supported by the Center for Integrative Conservation Research, the Peach State Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program, and the Graduate School of the University of Georgia.
The purpose of the event is to create an opportunity for participants to interact with potential graduate advisors and UGA graduate students BEFORE submitting an application to graduate school and to learn more about apply for graduate school and fellowship programs. Therefore, prospective participants should be planning to apply for graduate school in 2019 for admission to PhD programs in 2020.
The event will occur between 28 February- 2 March 2019. Participants will have the opportunity to network with faculty and graduate students and will participate in workshops devoted to learning successful tips in applying to graduate school, contacting potential mentors, and preparing applications for fellowship programs, including the NSF GRFP and the Ford Predoctoral Fellowship.
Please visit this page to learn more about the event and access the application. Applications are due on 15 December 2018 and decisions will be made and applicants will be notified during the first two 15weeks of January.
