BU Bioinformatics has funds available through the BU Bioinformatics Diversity Travel Fellowship for prospective PhD students to visit Boston, tour the campus and meet our students and faculty, before applying for admission to our Program.

We are committed to increasing the representation of minorities in science. We believe that all of our students benefit from being part of a community where they can learn about each other’s backgrounds, cultures, religious beliefs, physical and mental abilities, political views and career aspirations. As ours was one of the first Bioinformatics graduate programs, we feel a particular responsibility to support highly qualified individuals who are underrepresented in science.

If you are planning to apply to PhD programs in computational biology, bioinformatics or systems biology during the next year, this award includes transportation, hotel and other related costs, as well as a waiver for the PhD Program application fee. So take advantage of this unique opportunity to visit historic Boston, tour the campus, speak with students and faculty about their research, and discover the program on a new level.
