Uncategorized No Comments »

Please encourage your undergraduate men of color to apply for this free program at Penn that prepares students for doctoral degrees in education, health, human services/social policy, criminal justice, and workforce development. More information is available online here:


Preparing Undergraduate Men of Color for Doctoral Study in the RISE Fields

We invite Native American, Black, Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander undergraduate men who are presently in their junior year to apply for participation in our Grad Prep Academy, a project that prepares scholars for doctoral study and research-related careers in the five RISE fields: education, health, human services and social policy, juvenile and criminal justice, and workforce development.

This program includes a four-day visit to the University of Pennsylvania. We will select 32 juniors (8 per racial/ethnic group) and cover all their travel expenses, lodging, and meals. During their visit to our campus in September 2016, the selected scholars will learn more about applying to and succeeding in graduate school; meet our faculty and hear about their research projects; interact with our graduate students and alumni; and tour Philadelphia.
