UCSF Virtual Matchmaking Event for Postbaccalaureate Scholars

Are you interested in doing research after you graduate?
Attend our annual UCSF matchmaking event where you will meet faculty with similar research interests as yours


UCSF is hosting a matchmaking event on Janaury 26, 2024 for trainees who currently have or will have a bachelor's degree by June, 2024 and who are eligible for an NIH Diversity Supplement to meet UCSF investigators and discuss research opportunities funded through diversity supplements. Trainees who apply will have the opportunity to have short, 10-minute interviews with faculty in related research areas. In addition, trainees who make a match will be able to apply to the UCSF PROPEL Program (propel.ucsf.edu), which is a new post-baccalaureate program. Applications now closed until Fall 2024.
