Who should attend? Undergraduates planning ahead for graduate school AND incoming first-year PhD students (US citizenship or permanent residency is required)
What fields are included? Applied physical and biological sciences, math, and engineering (“applied” is broadly construed; get additional details about applicable fields at http://hertzfoundation.org/fellowships/fields).
What will be covered at the info session? Dr. Vincent Holmberg, Hertz Scholar alum and faculty member in the Department of Chemical Engineering, and Dr. Floris van Breugel, Hertz Scholar alum and Post-Doctoral Scholar in the Department of Biology and the e-Science Institute, will share their insights, advice, tips and answer questions for current and future applicants. Join us to learn more and dispel myths about this opportunity for seniors wishing to pursue PhDs, and first-year grad students, in any of the applied physical and biological sciences, mathematics, and engineering.
