The University of Chicago is now accepting applications for our Discover UChicago program, an expenses-paid visit weekend to be held October 18th-20th, 2018 for candidates traditionally underrepresented in their fields. This program is intended for individuals planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2018 with the intention of matriculating in the fall of 2019. 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, as well as master’s programs in the majority of our schools and divisions, are encouraged to apply online by August 15, 2018. In particular, students from underrepresented backgrounds, first generation students, women in STEM fields, and undocumented students 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/.
