A recent graduate of the University of Wyoming’s School of Pharmacy in the College of Health Sciences has been accepted into Princeton University’s Prospective Ph.D. Preview (P3) Program.

Kirsten Underwood, a native of Bishop, Calif., applied to the highly competitive program before graduating in May of this year in preparation for the process of earning her Ph.D.

As a first-generation college student, Underwood fulfilled an application requirement to the Princeton program, which seeks to increase the number of people from underrepresented populations in Ph.D.-level education and career experiences.

“I am excited to meet with students and faculty at Princeton and see what graduate school looks like at another institution,” Underwood says. “At P3, I hope to gain insight into the graduate school admissions process and prepare a competitive application to submit to Ph.D. programs this fall.”
