University of Pennsylvania PhD Program for Black Males

University of Pennsylvania PhD Prep Program for Black Males    

The University of Pennsylvania is launching an 18-month Academy here at
 focused on preparing Black males for admission to Ph.D. programs in
 education immediately upon completion of their undergraduate studies.
 They will begin the Academy this fall with 10 Black males who are in
 their junior year of college. Check it out here:
 http://www.gse.upenn.edu/blackmen    

Each Academy participant will receive a 4-day all-expense paid visit to
 Philadelphia this fall; opportunities for meaningful engagement with the
 dean, faculty, graduate students, and Black male alumni; free enrollment
 in a 3-month Kaplan GRE Prep Course (for which Penn is paying $1,200 per
 participant); a current Black male Ph.D. student who will mentor him
 through the application process; and an application fee waiver when he
 applies for Fall 2011 admission to Penn (valued at $85).  

 Most importantly, those who are admitted to our Ph.D. Programs two years from  now will be fully funded for their entire 3-4 years of doctoral study.  Please forward this information to Black male undergraduates you know
 and encourage them to submit applications by August 21st. The Academy is
 only for Black men who are starting their junior year this fall and
 planning to graduate in Spring 2011.

Hi Deena,

This appears to be a really great opportunity!  I will pass it along.

Thanks,
