GAAP is a free program, created and run by current INSTAAR grad students. We're here to help prospective grad students move through the graduate application process. All are welcome; and we especially encourage applicants from under-represented and non-traditional academic backgrounds to use these resources.
When you sign up for this free program, you’ll be matched with an INSTAAR grad student mentor from your department of interest who can answer questions and help you navigate the process. Anyone who intends to apply to a department affiliated with INSTAAR is welcome. We look forward to lending an eye, ear or hand to your application process!
Applicants interested in applying to the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) department can sign up for the ATOC-specific mentorship program; or sign up for GAAP instead if you're interested in ATOC plus other INSTAAR-affiliated departments.
Application timelines and requirements for INSTAAR-affiliated departments (Google doc).
Mentorship is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis from September to early November
