The BBSP program is now accepting applications for Fall 2015 admissions. The deadline for completed application materials will be December 2, 2014. PLEASE NOTE: the Graduate School also lists a deadline of December 17th for fellowship consideration. This deadline is independent of the BBSP application deadline. To be considered for BBSP your application must be submitted by December 2nd.
Students interested in the 14 PhD programs or any of the BBSP research areas must complete an online application through the UNC Graduate School. We will not review any application materials sent in email, nor will we answer questions regarding an applicant’s competitiveness to the program. If you have specific questions about BBSP, please direct them to our office and not the Graduate School. We do not offer admissions directly into a lab, nor do we offer admissions for transfer students.
Applications are reviewed by admissions committees composed of current BBSP faculty. Successful applicants have significant research experience and a clear appreciation of the goals of graduate research training. Reviewers consider the entire application – research experience, academic record, statement of purpose, and reference letters.
Detailed instructions on how to complete the online application can be found on our Application Instructions link to the right. We strongly encourage all applicants to review this section before completing your application because it contains program specific instructions. Please also read the information for Domestic or International applicants at the Graduate School website before beginning your application.
Students interested in the Program in Molecular & Cellular Biophysics are encouraged to also apply directly to that program. You may find the application here.
If you are unsure whether or not to apply to the BBSP program, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you.
NOTE: Students interested in the Biomedical Engineering Program must apply directly to that program.
