Diversity Info

The ERP Program is committed to developing a diverse student body with the assistance of the Admissions and External Affairs Committee and Diversity Committee. Both of these faculty committees are charged with identifying well qualified students from targeted underrepresented groups to consider research careers in Endocrinology & Reproductive Physiology.

Undergraduates who are entering their junior or senior year are encouraged to consider participating in the Summer Research Opportunities Programs on campus to experience the research opportunities available at UW-Madison and with faculty members from the ERP Program.

The UW-Madison Post-Baccalaureate Research Program (PREP) program provides college graduates from populations underrepresented in the Biomedical Sciences with research experience required to be competitive for graduate school.  ERP trainers are among the faculty mentors in the PREP community of scholars.

Incoming Graduate Students

The University of Wisconsin-Madison offers graduate fellowships for domestic minority and educationally disadvantaged students. The fellowship competition is open to new incoming graduate students and is held annually in February and March. If you are interested in being considered for this fellowship opportunity, please contact the Program Coordinator for additional information. Both M.S. and Ph.D. applicants are eligible for consideration.

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Funding focuses on the needs of underserved graduate student populations such as graduate students of color and first-generation graduate students.
