Discover UChicago 2016

In partnership with the Office of the Provost and UChicagoGRAD, the Divinity School invites prospective students from traditionally underrepresented populations in the academic study of religion to apply to attend Discover UChicago, which will take place on the University's Hyde Park campus on October 20-22. The event brings together selected participants from across the University's graduate divisions to preview graduate student work and life at UChicago, meet with faculty and current students, and attend workshops designed to aid applicants in crafting a competitive graduate application.
