Incoming Ph.D. students in any discipline.

The University Scholars Program is designed to stimulate an interdisciplinary, intergenerational, and diverse community of scholars. The program provides full tuition, fees, an academic year (fall/spring) stipend for up to six incoming graduate students who participate in bimonthly USP seminars and act as informal intellectual leaders and mentors (not advisers) to the program’s undergraduates.| More information
