The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, January 28, 2022 at 11:59pm.
Application packets must be complete at the time of submission, including letters of recommendation, as the Advisory Committee will begin reviewing applications immediately.
Each applicant must be nominated by a UCLA faculty member. This would typically be the applicant's graduate advisor if the applicant has already chosen a lab, or if not, a faculty member in whose lab the applicant has done a rotation. If you do not have a faculty sponsor, email Dr. Jeanette Papp at email@example.com
The applicant's Statement of Purpose (for incoming students) or Statement of Research Interest (for continuing UCLA graduate students) does not have a set length but should clearly and concisely reflect the applicant's research interest and work in genomic analysis. The statement should include a discussion of why the program would be a good fit for the applicant.
The applicant must be a US citizen or permanent resident to receive an award. Proof of status is required for those born outside of the US.
Program Overview gives more information, including amount of support, faculty list, and course requirements.
