How to Apply for Graduate School

So you want to be a scientist? 

To be successful in any endeavor of life one must have a plan. As a future scientist/ science professional we have provided assistance for you to create your own "Individualized Development Plan" (IDP) to help you map out your successful path in your chosen field. 
This IDP will help you determine your strengths and interests and will also provide you with information and opportunities to explore your career choice.
Take a moment to begin to develop your IDP...it all begins here! Please review the recommended IDP options below.

What is an Individual Development Plan (IDP)?

The IDP is a written list of goals mapped to a timeline, and includes goal setting for research projects, skills development, and career planning. The IDP is to be written and developed by the trainee, and is to serve as a framework for discussion between mentor and trainee. The IDP is only meaningful if mentors and mentees make full use of the IDP's potential as a research and career development tool.
