Consistent with our goal of enhancing the intellectual and social enrichment of the Department and University of Washington
community, we actively seek and welcome students from diverse backgrounds.
You should submit a Diversity Statement if you want:
Your application to be reviewed with consideration of your educational, socio-economic disadvantaged, or disability-related background
and/or culturally varied experiences.
To be considered for some types diversity-related funding offers.
If you are of Native American heritage, and indicate this fact on the Epidemiology Application Form, you will be considered
as coming from a diverse background even if you choose not to submit a Diversity Statement. However, you will be asked to submit proof
of tribal affiliation.
The statement should address the ways those experiences have affected the development of your special interests, career
plans, future goals, and how you may have overcome various obstacles.
Maximum one single-spaced page in 12-point font.
This statement is optional. If you have little to say, please omit it from your form.
