SIPP@Brown welcomes applications from students currently in their junior year of undergraduate studies who are interested in pursuing a career in philosophy and who identify with a traditionally underrepresented group in the field. These groups include women, African Americans, Chicano/as, Latino/as, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTs, economically disadvantaged communities, and people with disabilities.

We will also take applications from students who are in their senior year, or who already have a degree, as long as they have not yet applied to graduate school. Unfortunately we can only accept applications from students who are U.S. citizens or who are permanent residents/green card holders.

The application form will be available on this page later in the fall. Before beginning the application, applicants should be prepared to:

  • Answer the question: Why do you want to attend SIPP@Brown?

  • Upload a transcript (unofficial version is fine).

  • Upload a writing sample of no more than 3000 words.

Applicants must also arrange to have two letters of recommendations submitted on their behalf. Letters of recommendation should be submitted here.

Both the application form and the recommendation form require you to have or to create a google account. If you want to fill out the application form without creating a google account, go here. If you want to submit a recommendation without creating a google account, go here.

All application materials will be due by March 1, 2020. Students will be notified of admissions decisions by April 1.

All questions about applications and admissions should be directed to
