STEP 2. SUPPORT-SySTEM

Through this partnership, we will create a strong support-system for one another. By sharing information, resources, and experiences, we will work to increase shared knowledge among Black Women in PhD programs across the country. We will grow together, thereby diversifying and improving the culture of our academic institutions along the way.

STEP 3. STRIVE-FORWARD

By locating programs that best suit your interests, prospective graduate students will be encouraged to apply to PhD and Masters degree programs. Uncovering the mystery surrounding the application process will attract future women of color applicants and ultimately, create more Black Woman, PhDs.

Together, we will reduce the barriers between a Black Woman and her Doctoral degree ambitions.
