ISIB Admission Criteria

Those majoring in mathematical or biological sciences are best suited for the program.

Rising sophomore, junior and senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for the Iowa Summer Institute in Biostatistics. Priority admission will be given to underrepresented and disadvantaged students and to students from small liberal arts colleges which do not offer substantial coursework in statistics or biostatistics.

College graduates who have not started a graduate program are eligible to apply.  African Americans, Alaska Natives, Hispanic, Latino, Native Hawaiians, Native Americans, other Pacific Islanders, and also disadvantaged students are especially encouraged to apply.

All applicants must have a minimum overall GPA of 3.2.

Anticipated enrollment for the 2018 ISIB program is 18 students.
