While there is no strict GPA requirement, the average GPA of admitted students is typically above 3.5. However, we do look favorably upon students who can work through adversity. Most accepted students are rising junior and seniors, though we encourage exceptional younger students who have some independent research experience to apply. You must nothave completed your degree before the program begins. Due to NSF funding requirements, our program is open only to U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
