The Richards Center Emerging Scholars Summer Mentoring Program exposes students to doctoral study in the discipline of history. During a one-week summer residential program (June 25-June 30, 2017), Pennsylvania State University faculty and staff demystify the graduate school admissions process and educate participants about the academic profession. Students will participate in a simulated doctoral seminar and attend workshops on a variety of topics, including writing, digital research, and graduate student life. Travel, housing, and course materials are provided by the university. Penn State’s Richards Center, the Department of History, and the Department of African American Studies sponsor the program in a collaborative effort to attract and enroll students from underrepresented populations.
The Richards Center at Penn State sponsors a FREE weeklong summer program for students from underrepresented backgrounds who want to learn more about pursuing a PhD in History. The application deadline has been extended until April 15. Please encourage your students to apply. More information can be found at the website below.
Crystal Sanders, an ABWH life member, directs the program.
