The Grad Spark Accelerator Program does what Admissions Consultants do, but smarter. Because we care about diversity and we are committed to seeing you succeed, we connect doctoral program hopefuls who are African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans with successful US grad student mentors who coach you one-on-one through the application process. You’ll also get access to on-demand tools and resources as part of the package.
