Application Information

Applications for our 2024 Cohort have closed. Applicants can expect to hear back from us regarding a decision in early April.

Application Requirements

  • Application questionnaire
  • Unofficial academic transcript
  • Faculty reference (note: this is not a reference letter or letter of recommendation)


On the application, we ask the following questions:

  • Why are you interested in research in general?
  • What research topics are you most interested in?
  • How will conducting research help you meet your career goals?
  • Have there been any obstacles that have prevented you from getting involved in research prior to entering your senior year?
  • What do you hope to get out of this experience?

Tips for the application

  • Please answer all questions thoroughly, and take your time when filling out the questionnaire.
  • Your faculty reference should come from someone who can attest to your academic integrity. Ideally, this would come from a professor who had you as a student in one of their courses.
  • You do not need prior lab experience when applying to our program!
