We are actively recruiting underrepresented minority JUNIOR and SENIOR Biology majors for our upcoming FOCUS program at Georgia Tech (http://www.focus.gatech.edu/). FOCUS is a three day (begins Thursday evening) recruitment program that encourages students to consider graduate school. Students will visit labs, talk to faculty and students, and attend workshops on (i) graduate school funding, (ii) the admissions process, and (iii) finding success in graduate school. See the attached flyers.
The FOCUS Program takes place at Georgia Tech in Atlanta on January 15-17, 2015. All conference participation costs (hotel, food and registration) will be covered. In addition, a transportation allowance will be provided.
THE ON-LINE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 31, 2014. HOWEVER, BECAUSE THERE ARE LIMITED SLOTS — WE ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO APPLY IMMEDIATELY.
Please forward this email and attachment to your underrepresented minority students. Interested students should navigate to the FOCUS program website (http://www.focus.gatech.edu) and apply immediately.
Students can also contact our FOCUS coordinator directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 404-894-8163.
