Do you know an advanced undergraduate, recently graduated, or terminal MA student interested in pursuing doctoral studies in African-American Literature, Culture, and/or Rhetoric?
If so, the Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program will support underrepresented students with a strong demonstrated interest in getting a PhD in this area(s) of study. Selected students will receive an all-expense paid trip to Penn State from October 28-31. The event coincides with the Celebrating African-American Literature and Language (CAALL) Conference and consists of specialized workshops, sessions, and panels that will introduce students to cutting-edge scholarship, doctoral studies, and the graduate application process.
Application deadline is May 20th.
