Who should apply?
Our programs target undergraduate juniors from backgrounds historically marginalized from academia and the astronomical sciences in particular. While there is a preference for students of color, we welcome applications from students of all backgrounds. Our application review process considers historical injustices and the tendency for traditional application practices to reproduce racial disparities in academia.
