Attention Undergrad Students: PhD Pipeline Opportunity

The PhD Pipeline Opportunity Program is designed to increase the number of under-represented (African-American, Latino/Latina American, Native American) faculty in business disciplines by preparing students for PhD programs.  A two-week summer institute for undergraduate students is one of its components.  The institute provides students with opportunities to learn about the benefits of a faculty lifestyle as well as network with faculty and doctoral students from the Duke University, Fuqua School of Business and other important business schools.  Participants will have the opportunity to prepare for the GMAT exam.  Free transportation, lodging and meals will be provided.  Upon completion of the program, participants will receive an iPad and a $500 stipend.
