The contest award goes to the contestant who is the first to identify the largest number of qualifying programs.

The contest is not sealed, so there isn't credit for second mentions.

    There is an unfortunate circumstance that due to health reasons, my son will not be able to apply to graduate school as planned. I will try to judge the entries and pay where due, hopefully it will be useful information in future. Thanks.

    Hi, I have two questions. May I know what type of PhD Program you are interested in? There are two types: 1. Individual Doctoral (Conduct research independently related to field of interest eg genetic. This type you can proposed to on potential advisor on project you are interested in). 2. Structured Doctoral Program (Structured curriculum/compulsory courses and doing research specifically for area genetic in a research training group). Second questions, do you prefer these three types of funding? i) funded PhD program, or research fellowship, or employed in a position funded at the university?...Kindy advise for these questions. Thank you :)

      I would think that any situation where he can earn a living by working on his PhD would qualify. Thank you!

    What is something I could improve on to get what you're looking for. Do you have criteria (stats or other, ethnicity, awards) that your son has to help find funding options?

    Also, you need to confirm both that the institution offers a PhD in one of the qualifying genetics majors, and that the deadline is Jan 15 or later for that major. Sometimes they have different deadlines for different majors.

      Would you prefer that the program is limited to genetics PHD programs in the USA, North America and Europe or only USA. Besides are you comfortable if the whole globe is placed into consideration. Thanks

    We need you to identify actual full PhD programs in Genetics - like 4 to 6 year programs resulting in a PhD degree. It is not a very large number of these in the world. We only need a handful, but they are hard to find, since most programs have earlier deadlines.
    Your entry should identify that the Fall 2021 application date is Jan 15 or later, in order to be a qualifying mention.
    It should be in one of the Genetics areas.
    We need you to drill down into the details of the program to confirm that it meets the criteria.
    We need selections that are focused and positively identified as meeting the criteria.
    We may not have time to investigate unverified suggestions.
