The Program will not run in Fall 2022; check back for future semesters!

The Biology Prospective Scholars Program (PSP) at Boston University (BU) invites prospective graduate students to a multi-day virtual event that provides an overview of the graduate admissions process in Biology at BU. The PSP event will connect participants with BU faculty and graduate students within Biology and affiliated departments, provide opportunities to meet one-on-one with prospective faculty mentors, introduce graduate student groups on campus, provide professional development resources, and facilitate discussions with participants and current graduate students on issues of diversity and inclusion, academic life, and living in Boston, among others. 

The Biology PSP event will take place on September 21, 2021 through Zoom. Applications to the PSP event are accepted on a rolling basis until September 1, 2021. Prospective students from under-represented backgrounds in science are strongly encouraged to apply (details below). Note that this is not considered an official application to the Biology graduate programs.
