Graduate and Postdoctoral Research Symposium Scholar Visit

The Graduate School is pleased to announce a new recruitment initiative: the Research Symposium Scholar Visit. This is a fully-funded program designed to recruit outstanding underserved and underrepresented students from campus, in-state, and nationally to Ph.D. programs at Wayne State. It will be a two-day event on March 4-5, 2019, scheduled to coincide with the Graduate and Postdoctoral Research Symposium. Participants will:

  • Have their travel costs and overnight stay covered by the Graduate School
  • Meet current graduate students and faculty
  • Visit departments and tour campus facilities
  • Participate in the Graduate and Postdoctoral Research Symposium

We are soliciting nominations of  prospective students who have either already applied for 2019 admission, or have indicated a strong interest in applying in future.  Since this is first and foremost a recruitment visit, priority will be given to nominees that a department anticipates admitting with an offer of funding. Nominations can be submitted via this link: Scholar Visit Nomination Form.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 25, 2019. Departments and recipients will be notified by February 15, 2019.
