Are you considering physics graduate school?
Come visit us before the 2010 SACNAS meeting!
Please contact us if you are attending the SACNAS National Conference in September 2010 and have an interest in pursuing physics in graduate school. Since the meeting this year takes place in Southern California, just a few hours drive from our campus, we can easily arrange an expenses-paid visit to our campus ahead of the meeting. We will arrange for visiting students to tour our beautiful campus nestled right next to the Pacific Ocean. There will be opportunities to explore the physics department and its research laboratories and to meet physics faculty and graduate students. Funds are available to traditionally under-represented groups (African-American, American-Indian, Chicano/Latino, Puerto Rican, or Pacific Islander) in physics.
We can also help you visit at another time.
The last day we can arrange for a visit is September 30, 2010. If you would like to visit before then, independent of the SACNAS meeting, we can fly you (and your undergraduate mentor) out to Santa Barbara to come visit our campus. We are confident that once you see our campus, meet our graduate students and faculty, you will understand that doing high impact physics gets a huge boost from working with supportive mentors and peers while living in a beautiful place. Our academic calendar may be useful in planning your visit. Funds are again available to traditionally under-represented groups (African-American, American-Indian, Chicano/Latino, Puerto Rican, or Pacific Islander) in physics.
We look forward to meeting you here in Santa Barbara!
If you are interested in visiting, please contact us via email.
We will then ask that you send us the following three items:
1. A statement, no longer than 1 page describing:
- your physics interests
- your goals for the visit
- and how your visit to UCSB will impact your future
- We prefer an official transcript, but we will accept an unofficial one
3. A very brief recommendation letter from 1 professor:
- The letter should be short and include a phone number to contact the professor directly
- The letter should be emailed directly from the professor to GAANN fellow Curtis Asplund:
