Discover UChicago: Diversity Visit Program Application Now Open

The University of Chicago is now accepting applications for our Discover UChicago program, our annual diversity visit weekend scheduled for October 17-19, 2021. This program is intended for individuals from diverse backgrounds who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2021 with the intention of matriculating in the fall of 2022. This exciting event combines workshops on applying to graduate school, individual meetings with faculty and UChicago students, and opportunities to explore our community and the city of Chicago.

Students interested in doctoral programs, as well as master’s programs in the majority of our schools and divisions, are encouraged to apply online by August 16, 2021, at 11:59 PM. Students from underrepresented backgrounds, first-generation students, women in STEM fields, and undocumented students are especially encouraged to apply. A full list of participating programs may be found on our DU program website. For application instructions, students should visit our application page. To hear directly from program alumni who are current students at the University of Chicago, applicants can check out our student testimonials page.
