Early Identification Program

EIP Mission

A thriving economic and social future requires a commitment to making advanced educational opportunities available to all individuals, especially those facing obstacles in our educational system. In response to that need, the University of Washington’s Early Identification Program for Graduate and Professional Studies encourages and assists undergraduates from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to enter graduate school.

Our goal is to promote diversity in academia and the professions, which will enrich research and policy programs and ultimately represent the entire spectrum of American people.

We offer a variety of services and resources designed to enable EIP students to enhance their undergraduate experience, explore various career options at the graduate level, and prepare for successful admission to and completion of graduate or professional school. We emphasize undergraduate research opportunities, which will benefit students regardless of which graduate or professional path they choose to pursue.
