Driskill Graduate Program in Life Sciences

Admissions and Application


The Walter S. and Lucienne Driskill Graduate Training Program in Life Sciences (DGP) evaluates applicants for admission based on the entire application package. Our goal is to identify and offer admission to those individuals with potential for success in graduate school and beyond. To this end, we carefully examine each applicant's academic achievement and "hands on" research experiences.

Application Package

Application deadline is December 1. Priority is given to applications that are complete, including letters of recommendation, by this date.

Applicants to the Phd-MPH dual degree should choose L21-PH as their program in CollegeNet.  All others choose L20-PH.

Application for admission to the DGP has three major components. Expand the components below for detailed information on application needs.

Applicants will apply for admission to ONLY ONE program, either DGP or IBiS.  Applicants should base the decision as to which program will best suit their training needs by focusing on the concentration of research faculty on each campus.

The application deadline is Dec. 1.
