The Diversity Scholars and Leaders Professional Development Workshop focuses on helping emerging scholars from underrepresented groups prepare to enter the field of nonprofit, philanthropic, and voluntary action studies. The program includes a Professional Development Workshop (PDW) to be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 as a pre-session of the ARNOVA Annual Conference in Grand Rapids, MI. The focus of the PDW is on preparing participants who are beginning master or doctoral level education and research.
To qualify for the Diversity Scholars and Leaders Program, applicants must be enrolled in or considering enrollment in an accredited graduate program with a focus on philanthropic, nonprofit or voluntary action studies (preference will be given to those already pursuing doctoral studies in these areas). The selection committee actively seeks applications from persons of traditionally underrepresented groups.
