Graduate School Prep Lab

March 7 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

The Cornell Graduate School Office of Access and Recruitment is hosting the Grad School Prep Lab program on Thursday, March 7th (4:00 pm – 8:00 pm) for Cornell undergraduates interested in exploring graduate education. This non-discipline specific, on-campus program is designed for Cornell juniors of any major. However, this program is intended for students interested in learning more about research-based graduate degrees, not professional degree programs (JD/Law, MBA, or DVM/Bet School). 

This program will provide an overview of graduate education and the admissions process as well as hold a workshop by Cornell Career Services on promoting yourself and succeeding as a PhD applicant.

This program has a particular focus on engaging those who are interested in and seek to help advancing aspects of diversity, inclusion, access, and equity within higher education. Undergraduate students engaged in scholar programs focused on broadening access to undergraduate research and preparation for graduate studies are especially encouraged to register. Such programs include but are not limited to the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program, McNair Scholars, OADI Research Scholars, CSTEP, Biology Scholars, LSAMP Scholars, Ryan Scholars, Kessler Scholars, Posse, and the Pre-Freshman Summer Scholars.

More information including eligibility criteria and the online application can be found here: https://cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aV4VHAF45QY54wK.  Applications are due Sunday, February 18, 2024 by 11:59 pm EST.
