A number of undergraduate diversity institutes in philosophy are now accepting applications for their 2016 sessions. These institutes operate independent of one another, but they share the overarching goal to encourage and support undergraduates from underrepresented groups in philosophy. Each institute normally accepts 10-20 students per year.
The following institutes are now accepting applications:
Philosophy in an Inclusive Key (PIKSI) – PIKSI-Rock (June 13–22, 2016) and PIKSI-Boston (July 17–23, 2016). Application deadline: March 21, 2016.
Rutgers Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy – July 10–17, 2016. Application deadline: May 9, 2016.
Summer Immersion Program in Philosophy at Brown University ([email protected]) – July 17–30, 2016. Application deadline: March 15, 2016.
UCSD Summer Program for Women in Philosophy – June 20–July 1, 2016. Application deadline: March 1, 2016.
UMass Dartmouth Summer Program for Diversity: Logic – May 22–28, 2016. Application deadline: April 18, 2016.
Undergraduates and recent graduates from underrepresented groups, including women, African Americans, Chicano/as and Latino/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTs, individuals from economically disadvantaged communities, and people with disabilities, are urged to apply.
We encourage you to spread the word about these and other opportunities to your undergraduate students, and to consider serving as their sponsor. Faculty sponsors mentor students, helping them to prepare their applications, and, when possible and appropriate, work with the students after the summer institute to help further the gains the students have made.
