We are a group of current graduate students in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington in Seattle. We know that the process of applying to Ph.D programs, along with many other aspects of the STEM Ph.D experience, can often seem mysterious. So we are creating a series of videos designed to demystify this process for anyone interested in pursuing a graduate degree in Biology in our program or anywhere else.
The videos will be uploaded as they are finished—we hope that most or all of them will be available before the start of the application cycle for those of you interested in starting grad school in the fall of 2019. If you find yourself with a question that isn't answered in a video addressing that particular topic, please leave a comment and we will do our best to respond! You can also email us at the address associated with this YouTube channel. Cheers and good luck!!
You can view the first videos from their diversity and equity initiative here, on the BioPHilmD YouTube channel:
