Our world is changing, and urban planning can lead the way. In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, urban planners work to create communities that are economically thriving, socially just, and environmentally sustainable. A doctoral degree in planning can prepare you to link new knowledge to issues that affect communities and policy-making worldwide.
To introduce planning doctoral study to selected outstanding students, the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy, in partnership with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, will host a four-day workshop to prepare students to apply to and succeed in doctoral programs. Students from groups that are under-represented on planning faculties are particularly encouraged to apply.*
The workshop will be on the USC campus, in the heart of Los Angeles, July 21-24, 2013. Registration and instructional materials will be provided at no cost, lodging and meals will also be provided at no cost, and travel stipends are available for students coming from outside of California.
This workshop will include:
* Groups that are under-represented on planning faculties include: African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders.
Application Deadline: Friday, April 26
Notification of Application Status: Week of May 6
Program Dates: July 21–24, 2013
