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 2020 program will be announced later this fall.

During the program, participants will attend two daily seminars. 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 director of the 2020 program is Amy Berg (Rhode Island College). (Previous co-directors have been: Nina Emery, Anna Brinkerhoff, Arianna Falbo, Zach Barnett, Iain Laidley, and Thomas Fisher.)
