Not only is your application deadline determined based on the Major Field you select, but also your application will be routed to an appropriate panel based on your selected field. See “Field of Study
” for a list of prospective panels with their component fields. If you do not see a Major Field of Study that lists your actual subject area, please choose the Major Field by your discipline, and the subfield by your major area of emphasis. For example, if you study Agriculture or Agronomy, you would select Life Sciences, and then choose the subfield as “Biochemistry”, “Genomics”, “Organismal Biology”, etc. depending on the area you are planning to emphasize in your graduate study.
