SIPP@Brown is a two week residential program for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy and who are members of groups that traditionally have been underrepresented in the field. The dates for the 2018 program will be July 8 to 21.*

During the program, participants will attend two daily seminars: The Philosophy of Time, taught by Nina Emery, and Global Justice, taught by David Estlund. They will also participate in regular social and educational activities arranged by the Brown Department of Philosophy, and in the SIPP@Brown Conference. Participants can expect to leave the program with a better understanding of what graduate school in philosophy is like and how to prepare applications for both MA and PhD programs.

SIPP@Brown provides food and lodging for students during the program and reimburses up to $500 of travel costs to and from Providence, RI. Students also receive a $500 stipend.

The directors of the 2018 program are Nina Emery and Zach Barnett. (Iain Laidley was a co-director in 2017, and Thomas Fisher was a co-director in 2015 and 2016.)
