The Diversity and Equity Initiative in the Mind Sciences (DivE In) at the University of Pennsylvania is now accepting applications for DivE In 2023 on Oct. 13-15. The application deadline is May 31.

This initiative is geared towards serving undergraduate students from marginalized groups that are traditionally underrepresented in graduate school and involves a weekend at UPenn devoted to discussing graduate school and the application process. We also have a strong focus on mentoring and networking: students get connected with a mentor, have mock interviews with Penn faculty, and have opportunities to informally network with members of the Penn community. Mind Sciences includes judgment and decision making. For a complete list of the faculty involved, see https://mindcore.sas.upenn.edu/people/faculty-and-associates/.

Travel to Penn and expenses are fully paid for admitted students to reduce barriers to engaging with faculty and trainee mentors.

We encourage rising juniors, seniors, and recent or not-so-recent graduates from underrepresented backgrounds to apply. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of need (e.g., lack of access to mentorship), fit (e.g., interest in pursuing graduate programs in the mind sciences including human behavior and decision making) and merit (e.g., quality of written responses). We will prioritize applications from students that are not already affiliated with Penn.
