The Philosophy Department at Penn State organizes two distinct CUSP programs each year. These programs are directed toward prospective graduate students in philosophy from traditionally underrepresented groups (including African Americans, Chicano/as and Latino/as, Native Americans, and Asian Americans).
The Summer Institute is primarily intended for rising undergraduate sophomores or juniors (others are still encouraged to apply) who are considering pursuing an academic career in Philosophy and wish to learn more about what it means to be a part of the discipline.
Applications for the Summer Institute are due April 3, 2023. Selected students will be brought to campus for the institute (all expenses paid). The application and more information are available on Penn State’s website: bit.ly/CUSPPSU
