The Summer Program for Women in Philosophy at UC San Diego

As part of our commitment to inclusiveness in philosophy, the Marc Sanders Foundation is a proud sponsor of the Summer Program for Women in Philosophy at UC San Diego.

SPWP is one of the first undergraduate summer enrichment programs dedicated to building opportunities for women in the field of philosophy. Though the primary focus is on women, an additional goal is to bring underrepresented minorities into the field.

Established in 2014, the program offers two intensive philosophy seminars, workshops about the profession and applying to graduate programs, and opportunities to network with students and faculty mentors. Participants considered for admission not only have demonstrated philosophical talent and promise, but may also come from institutions with fewer resources, or have overcome hardships or obstacles.
