CHOPs is an all-expense paid trip that gives potential applicants an opportunity to visit Madison and the Department before applying to graduate school.


CHOPs weekend activities include the following:

·      “Life in Graduate School” presentation by current graduate students

·      Faculty research presentations 

·      Facility tours

·      Individual meetings with faculty

Please forward this information on to any students who would benefit from the CHOPs program. Preference for this program will be given to students from underrepresented backgrounds, from low-income homes, who are first-generation college students, and who will start the chemistry PhD program in fall 2020.
