Details

SIPP@Brown is a two-week residential program for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy and who are members of groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in the field. This year’s program will be held July 6 – 17.

During the program, participants will attend two daily seminars. They will also participate in regular social and educational activities arranged by the Brown Department of Philosophy and in the SIPP@Brown Conference. Participants can expect to leave the program with a better understanding of what graduate school in philosophy is like and how to prepare applications for both MA and PhD programs.

SIPP@Brown provides food and lodging for students during the program and reimburses up to $500 of travel costs to and from Providence, RI. Students also receive a $500 stipend.

SIPP@Brown welcomes applications from students currently in their junior year of undergraduate studies who are interested in pursuing a career in philosophy and who identify with a traditionally underrepresented group in the field. These groups include, but are not limited, to women, African Americans, Chicano/as, Latino/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTs, first-generation college students, economically disadvantaged communities, and people with disabilities.

We will also take applications from students who are in their senior year, or who already have a degree, as long as they have not yet applied to graduate school. Unfortunately we can only accept applications from students who are U.S. citizens or who are permanent residents/green card holders.
