HSI Pathways to the Professoriate

Marybeth Gasman and the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions at Penn GSE

(Grant award: $5,100,000)

HSI Pathways to the Professoriate, supported by a $5.1 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will prepare 90 students from Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) for Ph.D. programs over a five-year period. During the five-year program, the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions will partner with three Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) — Florida International University; the University of Texas El Paso; and California State University, Northridge — and five majority research institutions — New York University; University of California, Berkeley; University of Pennsylvania; Northwestern University; and University of California, Davis. Selected HSI undergraduate students will take part in intensive summer research programs and cross-institutional conferences, while also receiving mentoring, and support for applying to and enrolling in graduate school. The program's goal is to increase the number of Latino professors working in the humanities at U.S. colleges and universities.
