2. Universities’ Programs

Some universities have programs for applicants coming from diverse backgrounds. You usually need to apply for them and they would do their best to make the process fair regardless of where you are in your journey. Even if you don’t apply for these programs, their websites usually have information from previous years’ workshops. Personally I attended the first three and they have been helpful and empowering in different ways.
