Free Summer Mentoring Program for undergrads from historically underrepresented backgrounds interested in getting a Ph.D. in History.

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 24-June 29, 2018), 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. All expenses including travel, housing, meals, 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.
