Better matches between professors and graduate students

The current way of matching graduate students with professors is broken. Students send emails to dozens of professors, hoping for responses and receiving little or no feedback, while professors are either inundated with hundreds of email submissions from students or have trouble connecting with great students who just don’t know about their graduate research programs.

The Academic Road provides a single platform that connects the right professors with the right graduate students quickly, with powerful sorting, filtering. and communication tools that make finding the right match simple and easy.

Professor? Let’s make your recruiting life easier.

If you’re a professor running a graduate program or laboratory, you know how difficult it can be to find great students and keep up with the amount of submissions you receive by email. Instead of sifting through the influx of applications in your email inbox looking for the right student, direct students to apply to you at The Academic Road using the unique web link we generate for you once you’ve created your profile.

You can use your link on your personal page of your institution’s website, in email replies to students, or other media.Once students have applied to you through the Academic Road, you’ll be able to sort and filter student profiles based on important information like GPA, undergraduate degree, research interests, funding availability, ESL language scores, location, and many others, saving you time and effort in finding the best match.
