Re: Opportunity for minority students interested in Ph.D. planning programs
Through funding from NSF, the University of Michigan is hosting a two-day event ("PREVIEW") later this fall (Nov 8-9) that will bring to the Ann Arbor campus prospective doctoral students in six fields, including urban planning. The goal is to increase the number of applications from underrepresented minorities. Visitors will participate both in urban planning and campus-wide events.
This is a potentially great opportunity for students considering doctoral studies in planning. The University of Michigan will pay for all travel, lodging and on-campus food expenses for visitors, so for them the trip is essentially free.
(Note: this event does not commit students to applying to the Michigan doctoral planning program. It is part of NSF's efforts to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in the social, behavioral and economic sciences nation-wide.)
Prospective applicants can go directly to our website
and fill out a short on-line application.
The deadline is SOON: September 30.
We will contact students by mid-October to inform them if they have been accepted for the 2-day program in November.
