Grad School Resources
- NSF Graduate Research Fellowships
- Howard Hughes Medical Institute
- Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH)
- Peterson's Guide to graduate programs
- U.S. News Graduate Schools
- The Council for Graduate Schools - A site with links for grad school advice and resources for applicants in any discipline.
- GradView - Another good general source of information for graduate school preparation no matter what your area of interest.
- Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
- Graduate School in the Life Sciences - An excellent guide with many, many links to important information. The site also has its own advice section and brings up things you should be pondering. A great clearinghouse of info. on basically everything even very specific types of fellowships that you may not have thought of.
- Graduate School Advice - At the bottom of the page there are a series of links to advice on graduate school planning, deciding whether or not you are ready, selecting and evaluating programs, etc.
- Graduate School: Is it for you? - This link includes the same type of planning info as the rest steps in the process, tips on narrowing your search, etc. but it also includes a link to the pros and cons of grad school.
- Careers in Science and Engineering: Student Planning Guide to Grad School and Beyond - The table of contents from a book meant to be used as a planning guide not only for grad school, but also for career planning in general in the sciences. Each item in the table of contents is linked to a web version of the chapter or sub-section of the book. This book includes advice as well as individual profiles that tell for professionals in different fields "how they got where they are".
- Applying to graduate School in Biology - This site has some links that are redundant with those provided here, but it also has some links for specific types of grad programs you might be interested in.
- Careers in Life Sciences - Guides to different specialties and programs within biology pretty specific info for Wash. U. St. Louis students, but good for descriptions of the general fields within biology...
