Discover UChicago

The University of Chicago is now accepting applications for our Discover UChicago program, our annual diversity preview weekend scheduled for October 20-22, 2022. This program is intended for individuals from diverse backgrounds who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2022 with the intention of matriculating in the fall of 2023. (Our MD/PhD program is also participating, and welcomes applicants who will matriculate the following year.)

This exciting event combines workshops, meetings with UChicago faculty and 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 15, 2022 at 11:59 PM. Students from underrepresented backgrounds, first generation and low income college 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. 

We hope you will share this announcement with your students and colleagues and encourage them to Discover UChicago. Any questions may be directed to me at
