EPSP offers assistance to prospective PhD applicants

EPSP (Empowering Diversity and Supporting Scientific equity at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI)) and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute would like to help you with your PhD application to the Neuroscience program at Princeton University. We are delighted to match you with a Princeton Neuroscience Institute graduate student who would be happy to help review your application material! Amongst the resources we hope to offer are 1-on-1 mentorship and a comprehensive view of the program and its resources. EPSP aspires to build and support an inclusive, accessible, and diverse community for underrepresented groups and their allies at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. EPSP aims to empower, support and welcome scientists and research staff from all underrepresented backgrounds such as first-generation or low-Income students, and students who identify as belonging to a racial and/or ethnic underrepresented group, individuals who are neurodiverse, medically disabled, and/or LGBTQIA+. 

Our application support group is a student-run initiative led by the EPSP (for more information on EPSP please visit our website) The intention of this initiative is to provide support to prospective applicants. All personal information will be kept confidential and will not be shared with Princeton University faculty and administration. Participation in this program will not guarantee admission to the PNI Neuroscience Program.

The creation of this program was inspired by similar efforts offered by MIT's BCS program and NYU’s Neuroscience program Application Support Group.

Please fill out this form by November 9th and we will contact you with more information regarding the Application Support Group.
