Student Opportunity: MSI Graduate Student Weekend at the University of Pennsylvania

MSI Graduate Student Weekend is an annual event hosted by the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions (CMSI) and Penn Graduate School of Education (Penn GSE). This weekend is all-expenses paid and provides undergraduate students from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) with an opportunity to get additional information on pursuing graduate and professional degrees in education. During this time, students participate in professional development and educational sessions that are meant to inspire, inform, and prepare students for the graduate school process. For more information about the weekend, read the brochure!

The next MSI Graduate Student Weekend is April 6–8, 2017. If you are a Junior or Senior at an eligible Minority Serving Institution (see list here) and you're interested in pursuing a graduate degree in education, we welcome you to submit an application to attend this weekend. Otherwise, if you know of a student that qualifies for this opportunity, please share this information widely. Again, CMSI/Penn GSE pays for all travel, lodging, and food.

All application materials are due no later than December 1, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. EST and require the following:
