An Annual One Day Symposium For Advanced Undergraduates
This one-day symposium for advanced undergraduate students of color (juniors and seniors), and those with a BA or MA who are considering pursuing a Ph.D., introduces students to NYU faculty and graduate students from all four sub-fields of anthropology (cultural, biological, linguistic and archeological). The symposium features a workshop to demystify careers in the academy, a workshop on preparing a successful application, and smaller topical discussions of specific areas of research.
This is a part of NYU’s Anthropology Department initiative to increase the diversity of its students and faculty. All symposium events are free and meals are provided, but no travel funds are available.
Applicants to the symposium can either nominate themselves or be nominated by a faculty member at their current or past institution. Please note that we do NOT ask for letters of recommendation as a part of the application, only for contact information for potential faculty referees.
The 2019 Workshop will be Friday March 1st, 2019.
Application due date: Thursday, February 1, 2019 by midnight.
