A number of undergraduate diversity institutes in philosophy are now accepting applications for their 2017 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:

University of Pittsburgh’s Summer Program in Philosophy of Science for Underrepresented Groups — July 10–14, 2017. Application deadline: March 15, 2017.

Rutgers Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy — July 30–August 6, 2017. Application deadline: May 8, 2017.

Summer Immersion Program in Philosophy at Brown University (SIPP@Brown)— July 16–29, 2017. Application deadline: March 15, 2017.

Undergraduates and recent graduates from underrepresented groups, including women, African Americans, Chicano/as and Latino/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTQ individuals, those from economically disadvantaged communities, and people with disabilities, are urged to apply.

If you’re an undergraduate, we encourage you to consider applying for one of these institutes and to spread the word about these and other opportunities to your undergraduate student networks.

If you’re a faculty member, we urge 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.
