Early Identification Program



It's never too early to start planning for graduate school! This page provides information and links that you will find useful in your search for: the right graduate school; assistance with the graduate/professional school application process and test preparation; and funding sources (fellowships, scholarships, grants).

Test Preparation

Most graduate and professional programs require students to take a standardized test, much like the SAT for college, as part of their applications: GRE for graduate school, MCAT for medical school, LSAT for law school, and GMAT for business school.

See links for GRE prep resources here


GO-MAP (Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program)

GO-MAP's mission is to promote greater access to advanced studies for students of color and traditionally underrepresented groups. Aside from supporting UW graduate students both personally and professionally, GO-MAP offers scholarships for UW graduate and professional students, holds events throughout the year, sponsors lecture series and symposia, and supports student participation in national conferences. GO-MAP also co-sponsors many EIP events, including the Annual Spring Research Conference held every May. You can contact GO-MAP for information or questions at gomap@u.washington.edu.
