Diversifying Psychology Visit Day

Past Visit Days









This event is for research-oriented, junior and senior undergraduate students (and recent graduates) from underrepresented groups (e.g., students who identify as an ethnic/racial minority or who are the first in their family to attend college) who want to learn more about psychology graduate school and the Psychology Department at UVA.


Accepted students have their travel, meal, and hotel costs covered to spend the day visiting the department.



Email the following to [email protected]

  1. 1-2 paragraphs describing your research experience and interests, as well as how your research interests align with 1-2 faculty members in the UVA Psychology Department, and why you want to attend the Visit Day

  2. an unofficial copy of your transcript

  3. your CV or resume

  4. 1 letter of recommendation that speaks to your capacity for graduate study in psychology (letter writers can submit their letter directly to [email protected])


Students who applied last year but were not invited to the visit day are encouraged to apply again.


The deadline to apply is typically in February. 

To inquire, email Dr. Bethany Teachman, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, or Dr. Noelle Hurd, Scully Family Discovery Associate Professor.
