Opportunities (Scholarships, application deadlines, etc)

BE Application Assistance Program

A student-run program that the MIT Biological Engineering Department launched to support PhD applicants with a diversity of thought and experience. This includes students from groups underrepresented in STEM, students from academic institutions that have not sent many students to MIT, and students with non-traditional academic backgrounds. We pair current BE graduate students with PhD program applicants in order to answer questions about the application process and help strengthen their applications.
