EEB Scholars Program

The 2024 EEB Scholars Program application is now open and will close on June 15th, 2024.


As part of efforts to increase the diversity and accessibility of graduate studies in ecology and evolutionary biology, Princeton EEB encourages students to apply to the EEB Scholars Program. Talented students (EEB Scholars) will be selected to participate in a series of academic and social activities designed to give them the tools to confidently apply to graduate schools, as well as familiarize them with the Princeton EEB department. The program will focus on the graduate application process for any US-based EEB program, connecting with EEB faculty and students, and highlighting Scholars’ academic achievements. Students with backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM are  encouraged to apply.

The EEB Scholars Program is fully funded and will cover the cost of travel and lodging for all Scholars. Tentative dates for this year's program are October 2-5, 2024.

Our department is committed to increasing the presence and visibility of students with exceptional ability and promise who will bring a diversity of viewpoints and cultures to STEM fields generally and who have demonstrated an interest in and passion for research in EEB specifically. Fostering a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community of scientists is critical to our mission. This program is part of a larger effort to build and support such a scientific community.
