Breaking the Barriers to Entry: Workshops and Support for Mid‐Career and First‐Generation Pre‐Graduates

The Breaking the Barriers to Entry project seeks to host mid-career and non-traditional pre-graduates in a virtual summer workshop with the aim of socializing students into political science graduate programs.  Fourteen pre-graduates, selected through an application process, will participate in a fully-funded virtual workshop focusing on graduate-level writing and data analysis, and will be connected to a faculty mentor who will help with their applications, essays, and professional development.  Students will also receive a new laptop and seminal textbooks to help them prepare for and offset the costs of their graduate studies.
