The Program for Arts and Humanities Development (PHD) at The Ohio State University is currently recruiting students with sophomore or junior standing for its Summer 2011 cohort. The PHD is a research and mentoring program that serves Arts and Humanities majors from historically underrepresented groups from any U.S. college or university. The PHD focuses on providing developmental programming and support for students interested in pursuing graduate study in the Arts and Humanities disciplines. Over the course of the summer, the PHD provides guided coursework, research, mentoring, and cohort building. This unique structure provides students with the opportunity to gain foundational knowledge about graduate study in the Arts and Humanities and then build upon that foundation with discipline specific research.
Participating students will profit greatly from all facets of the PHD. Participants will:
• Receive direction in navigating the transition between undergraduate and graduate study in the Arts and Humanities.
• Build strong bonds with faculty mentors and students through networking, mentoring, and cohort building activities.
• Receive classroom and one-on-one instruction from graduate students and faculty at the cutting edge of their discipline.
• Interact with students earning advanced degrees in various disciplines and experience graduate school from a student perspective.
• Receive hands-on guidance for preparation of graduate school application materials (personal statement, statement of purpose, writing sample, etc.).
• Earn 4 hours of college credit and a $3000 monetary stipend.
• Receive free room and board.
• The PHD targets students from historically underrepresented groups with sophomore or junior status
• Interest in pursuing a MFA or PhD in the Arts or Humanities
• U.S. citizenship or Permanent Residency Status
• 3.0 or better G.P.A.
