This fall, the Department of English at Michigan State University will host the inaugural workshop for the MUSE Scholars Program: Mentoring Underrepresented Scholars in English. The MUSE workshop, which will be held at MSU on November 14-19, is directed at prospective English graduate students from underrepresented groups, including African American, Latinx and Chicanx, Asian American, and Indigenous peoples. It aims to introduce students to a robust culture of mentoring essential for a rewarding graduate school experience, and a thriving life in academia.
The all-expenses paid workshop will allow students to learn more about the English department, visit graduate classes, meet faculty and graduate students, receive feedback on their application materials for graduate school, and present their research to faculty. Students can learn more about the workshop, and submit an application, on the MUSE Program website (https://muse.cal.msu.edu/). The deadline for applications is September 15th
