The Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign extends an invitation to a virtual recruitment event on Saturday, November 6, 2021, for juniors, seniors, postbaccalaureates, and Masters students of color* underrepresented in the chemical sciences. Specifically, the department extends an invitation to those interested in pursuing a PhD in chemistry.
Participants will learn about the research conducted in the six chemistry areas at Illinois Chemistry: organic, inorganic, physical chemistry, chemical biology, materials, and analytical. They will also be able to network with current graduate students, including meeting with our chemistry faculty.
The participants will learn about:
- the fellowships available for underrepresented minorities in the chemical sciences;
- what constitutes a robust application to Illinois Chemistry;
- programs that are available to support students of color* during their time at the University of Illinois.
Access an itinerary of the event here: I-ChEM: Illinois Chemistry Experience for Minorities | Chemistry at Illinois.
Applying to the University of Illinois is exciting:
- as both subject and general GREs are not required for admission into the program;
- because there are various fellowships available for underrepresented students in chemistry.
* We define students of color to include students who may identify as Black, African-American, Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, Latinx, Chicanx, Native American, and multiracial.
