Biology Fellows Program – Apply Now!
Are you interested in scientific research, teaching, health sciences,
environmental issues, or other related fields?
Your first step is to build a strong foundation in introductory biology (BIOL 180, 200, 220)
and other core science courses.
Students who have not yet taken BIOL 180 are encouraged to apply to the UW Biology
Department’s Biology Fellows Program. A key aspect of this program is to participate in
BIOL 106 during Autumn Quarter (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 – 4:50 pm). This course
helps Biology Fellows define and develop skills for success as science students and
plan individualized academic, professional, and career pathways.
As a part of the Biology Fellows Program you will work on:
— Learning, thinking, and writing like a scientist!
— Joining a diverse community of UW biology students and mentors interested
in the many fields of biological science.
— Identifying research, scholarship, and training opportunities to support
your personal goals.
“We got the sense that the best way was to study to understand it from our own interests
as scientists. And that’s what I do now in my other classes — study as a scientist, to learn
because of my interests and to put that information into the things I already know. It was
a message that, that’s important, and you can keep it in mind. It inspires you.”
— BIOL 106 Student
Applications will be accepted until spaces are filled, and spaces are limited:
We look forward to your application!
