Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
August 1 - August 8, 2010

Rutgers University will sponsor the 2010 SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR DIVERSITY IN
PHILOSOPHY. This seven day program is designed to introduce undergraduate
students from diverse backgrounds to the various areas of specialization
within the discipline of philosophy, give students a better idea of what
graduate studies in philosophy is about, and explore various views about
what it means to be a professional philosopher. Up to fifteen students
will be given the opportunity to interact in formal and informal settings
with a group of talented graduate students and distinguished faculty members
from a number of universities. In the past, presenters have included
prominent faculty from University of Arizona, Boston College, Bowling Green,
Brown, Columbia, Cornell, CUNY, DePaul University, East Carolina University,
Fordham University, Georgia State University, Harvard, Howard,
Loyola-Marymount, MIT, Michigan State University, Northwestern University,
Notre Dame, NYU, Rutgers, San Diego State University, San Jose State
University, Spelman, Stanford University, St. Cloud University, SUNY at
Stony Brook, Syracuse, University of Central Florida, University of
Colorado, University of Illinois, University of Maryland, University of
Massachusetts-Amherst, University of Memphis, University of Minnesota,
UNC-Chapel Hill, University of Oregon, University of Washington-Seattle,
Vanderbilt, Vassar College and Yale.

Eligible students must demonstrate how their experiences and background
foster greater diversity in the discipline of philosophy and be full-time
students in a college or university in the United States (preference will be
given to sophomores and juniors, though others are eligible.) Interested
students must be in good academic standing and be interested in philosophy
as a career. The Institute will provide travel, room and board, and a $200
stipend. This year's program will be held at the University Inn &
Conference Center in New Brunswick, NJ.

Applications must be completed and submitted to the 2010 Summer Institute
for Diversity in Philosophy and postmarked no later than May 4, 2010.
