The American Philosophical Association, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, offers several undergraduate diversity institutes in philosophy. The goal of these institutes is to encourage and support undergraduates from underrepresented groups in philosophy.

UC San Diego Summer Program for Women in Philosophy

SPWP is a two-week program for undergraduate women in philosophy hosted by the UC San Diego Philosophy Department, featuring two philosophy seminar courses taught by visiting faculty, along with a variety of workshops taught by visiting and UC San Diego faculty and graduate students, all geared towards providing an engaging philosophical learning experience and helpful preparation for applying to and succeeding at graduate school in philosophy and beyond.

The 2017 Program is currently in the planning stages!  It will most likely be held in late June / early July 2017, and will feature two intensive seminar courses. In addition to these courses, the program will offer a number of workshops on things like: developing your writing, applying to graduate school, navigating academic culture.
