August 1 – August 8, 2010
Rutgers University will sponsor the 2010 SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR DIVERSITY IN PHILOSOPHY. This seven day program is designed to introduce undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds to the various areas of specialization within the discipline of philosophy, give students a better idea of what graduate studies in philosophy is about, and explore various views about what it means to be a professional philosopher. Up to fifteen students will be given the opportunity to interact in formal and informal settings with a group of talented graduate students and distinguished faculty members from a number of universities.
Eligible students must demonstrate how their experiences and background foster greater diversity in the discipline of philosophy and be full-time students in a college or university in the United States (preference will be given to sophomores and juniors, though others are eligible.) Interested students must be in good academic standing and be interested in philosophy as a career. The Institute will provide travel, room and board, and a $200 stipend. This year’s program will be held at the University Inn & Conference Center in New Brunswick, NJ.
Applications must be completed and submitted to the 2010 Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy and postmarked no later than May 4, 2010.
