We are looking for Ph.D. students and Postdocs to help make information about applying to graduate school/Ph.D. programs accessible. Please consider volunteering for one or both of the programs below to support students who may be interested in and/or applying to graduate school.

The Virtual Grad Admissions Office Hours would be a resource to alleviate challenges with the information imbalance applicants face when considering graduate studies, especially students from historically marginalized communities. We are bringing this program back with some changes following a break in 2022. 

 What: Hold virtual office hours to speak with prospective students. We will have students from 2 research groups host the session per week.

Time commitment: ~2 hours of your time in total between late October, 2023, to mid-December, 2023 (Application deadline for UW ECE).

Where: Zoom

If you are willing to help, please fill out this form, and we will email you with more details – https://forms.gle/Z5kQRbXS5vsu5Ym88 

These sessions will be diverse and impactful if we’re able to recruit student volunteers from different research groups. Please consider contributing 2 hours of your time if you are able. 

If you have any trouble accessing the forms, please ensure you are using your UW login. Feel free to email me at nkalavak@uw.edu if you have any questions about either of these programs and/or the role of volunteers.
