During the fair, lectures will be offered on the various financial aid available for the financing of master’s and doctoral studies, including the Academic Formative Experiences Program (PEAF) and External Funds. In addition, guidance will be provided on accessible support technology resources for graduate students.

In turn, it will be explained how to complete the application for electronic admission, whose deadline is March 1, 2019. For admission to the Law School of the UPR, the deadline is March 31, 2019. Students interested in applying for the August session may already file your application, which is available through the portal www.uprrp.edu/?page_id=467.

“Our Río Piedras campus continues to be the first teaching center in the country with the most competitive and diverse offer at the graduate level that Puerto Rico has at present. The production of knowledge, innovation and recognized professional development offered by graduate schools in all disciplines at the doctoral and master’s level are unparalleled in local higher education,” said Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, Dr. Carmen Maldonado. She also urged those interested in receiving an education of great quality and prestige to bet on being an integral part of this successful educational project at the graduate level of our Río Piedras Campus.
