Mentoring for the Future – Call for Applications

Thursday, May 26, 2022 12:00 am
- 12:00 am EDT

Organized by graduate students and faculty across the School of Global Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Penn State, this is a free exploratory workshop for persons who have not had enough information about graduate studies, who may not have considered graduate studies for a variety of social, economic, or cultural circumstances, and who might want to know more. The mentoring program invites applications from persons of diverse backgrounds who are curious about or interested in pursuing graduate studies in the larger field of languages, literatures, and cultures. This may include comparative literature; English; Spanish; French; Arabic; Germanic and Slavic languages, and associated fields of literary studies such as Asian studies; women’s, gender and sexuality studies; and more. Participants will attend a two-day online workshop series with twenty to twenty-five fellow participants. In this workshop, they will learn about various fields of linguistic, literary, and cultural study, as well as prepare application materials for related graduate programs. Participants will also be able to schedule meetings with Penn State faculty and participate in long-term mentorships with current graduate students.
