The University of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce the second Penn Honors Diversity Symposium. The symposium, organized in conjunction with many of Penn's Ph.D. programs, will emphasize student diversity and aims to particularly attract underrepresented students, especially sophomores and juniors, at colleges and universities in the Mid-Atlantic states who are interested in learning more about graduate school.

The symposium is a two-day plus program for students to (a) network with faculty and current graduate students, (b) learn about cutting-edge research and Ph.D. training opportunities at Penn, (c) present their work to faculty and students in a poster session, and (d) attend workshops and seminars about the admissions process, funding opportunities, life as a graduate student, etc. In addition, Annenberg School Dean John L. Jackson, Jr. will deliver a keynote address. For a full program and frequently asked questions, visit

Students should apply to attend the symposium by April 17, 2020. Students coming from the Mid-Atlantic States who are accepted to attend will have travel, lodging, and meals covered.
