Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute

Body: 

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation have created the Schomburg-Mellon Humanities Summer Institute to encourage minority students and others with an interest in African-American , African, and African Diasporan Studies to pursue graduate degrees, especially PhDs, in the humanities. The Summer Institute program, which is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, offers a seven-week session for ten rising seniors. The Institute, with the help of renowned scholars, will develop and nurture the students’ interest in the appropriate disciplines, and provide them with the requisite intellectual challenges and orientations needed to pursue humanities careers and to reach their full potential.
