Program Description:    

The Causeway Postbaccalaureate Certificate Program at Northwestern University is a year-long experience that seeks to increase the number of students from groups historically under-represented in the mathematical sciences who enroll in competitive doctoral programs in these disciplines.

Beginning in Summer 2024, Causeway participants will undertake a rigorous program of study in foundational coursework, work closely with Northwestern faculty on appropriate research projects, and receive career mentoring while serving as mentors themselves.

Causeway students pay no tuition and receive a yearly stipend of about $37,000. Your application will be at no cost to you upon submission.

Application requirements:

1. Academic Statement: How is Causeway a good fit for you? (500 words) Please tell us about your academic goals and how you plan to use Causeway to help you achieve them.

2. Personal Statement: What makes you a good candidate for Causeway? (1000 words) Please note, The Graduate School values diverse backgrounds, approaches, and perspectives, understanding them as essential ingredients for true academic excellence. You are encouraged to draw from both your academic and personal experiences in detailing what makes you a good fit for this program.

3. Two Letters of Recommendation: Both letters of recommendation must be from individuals who can address your academic potential.

4. Unofficial Transcripts

Causeway is committed to strengthening and broadening the mathematical sciences, specifically by expanding opportunities for individuals belonging to groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in graduate study and careers in the mathematical sciences. We invite you to share experiences, events, or personal perspectives that might help the admissions committee better understand why Causeway is right for you.

Finalists will be selected for a remote interview.
