EEB Scholars Program
The 2021 EEB Scholars Program Application is now closed.
Virtual program dates*: October 8-15, 2021
*Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year's EEB Scholars programming will be virtual.
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. In this program, talented students (EEB Scholars) will be selected from a competitive applicant pool and invited 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, connecting with EEB faculty and students, and highlighting Scholars’ academic achievements. Students with backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM are particularly encouraged to apply.
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.
