• Learn about the application process
• Get information on funding opportunities
• Explore potential research areas

If you would like to attend a session, please RSVP by filling out this short form:  All times are Pacific Standard time (PST).

Three Zoom sessions are planned:

- Wed Oct 12 from 4pm - 5pm PST (The RSVP ended at 4pm Pacific time Oct 11. Please join us for a later session.)
- Mon Oct 17 from 9am - 10am PST (The RSVP ended at 9am Pacific time Oct 16. Consider joining us for the Nov 2 session.)

Those who RSVP will be contacted a few days before the session with a Zoom link, and a link will be sent to others who RSVP before the form for the session closes.  Before you attend a session, you may find it helpful to read the information for prospective students

Applicants are strongly encouraged to look at the work of our faculty and to reach out to specific professors whose research feels like a fit with your interests. The best way to find the right mentor is to start those conversations early.
