Diverse Academic Opportunities Program
About UCF’s Diverse Academic Opportunities Program
The UCF Diverse Academic Opportunities Program is a virtual event (October 2, 2020) for prospective doctoral applicants from underrepresented populations in higher education to learn more about the programs they’re interested in before applying to graduate study at UCF. For instance, this might be women who are interested in the STEM fields or Hispanic/Latino populations pursuing a PhD degree in Psychology. See first-hand the UCF campus and facilities we have to offer and support you in your academic goals.
Preference will be with diverse or underrepresented applicants who are prepared to apply for a doctoral program in 2021 or 2022 who meet university minimum application requirements.
The October 2, 2020 session of the Diverse Academic Opportunities Program will be VIRTUAL!
Space is limited so we encourage you to apply today!
