Penn State’s Programs for Prospective Philosophy Grads from Underrepresented Groups
The Department of Philosophy at Penn State, known for its efforts to promote diversity in philosophy (see here and here, for example), will once again be putting on a program for prospective graduate students.
Penn State’s Cultivating Underrepresented Students of Philosophy (CUSP) program is now accepting applications for its Fall Graduate Workshop. According to Kailah Jeffries, one of the graduate assistants for CUSP, the workshop is for college seniors, recent graduates, and working professionals who are looking to pursue graduate education in philosophy and are currently working on their application materials for the following Fall term. It will take place in person from October 23-26, 2022. Further information is available here.
Penn State also puts on a Summer Institute intended primarily for rising undergraduate sophomores or juniors (others are still encouraged to apply) who are considering pursuing an academic career in philosophy and wish to learn more about what it means to be a part of the discipline.
If your department runs similar programs, please let us know about them in the comments.
