UPDATE: Others programs:

Summer Program for Diversity in Logic for Undergraduates (via Maureen Eckert, UMass Dartmouth):
The Summer Program for Diversity in Logic for Undergraduates will offer 12 students the opportunity to explore an exciting research theme in Logic (Paradoxes) in a one-week intensive program from May 22 through the 28th.  Guest speakers will present their current research in a workshop environment. Students will receive tutoring in formal techniques, mentoring, support for professionalization, and experience validation, understanding and advice regarding diversity issues they have encountered. Travel expenses, room and board will be covered and a modest stipend will be offered for accepted students. The website and applications will be up in approximately one week. Applications will be due mid-April. Please, contact Program Director Maureen Eckert if you have further questions: meckert at umassd dot edu. The Summer Program for Diversity: Logic is funded by a grant from the American Philosophical Association and the support of the CAS of UMASS Dartmouth.

You know, as an undergraduate I really looked forward to participating in some kind of minority philosophy summer workshop, but I was never able to get enough time off from my summer jobs to apply to them. Now that I’m a graduate student, I finally have the time off but there aren’t any summer graduate programs for minorities (only for women)! I’m probably more upset about this than I should be (I did get into a graduate school, after all!), but I’m sad that I “missed” something I probably need more now than I did then. Are there really no graduate summer programs for minority students, or have I just googled incorrectly?Report

Some of the diversity programs engage graduate mentors to participate in the institutes for undergraduate students. Perhaps you should be in contact?
