This October the Department of English at MSU is delighted to host the 4th Annual MUSE Scholars Program: Mentoring Underrepresented Scholars in English. The MUSE workshop will be held October 19-22 in East Lansing, MI. The MUSE workshop is directed at prospective English graduate students from underrepresented groups, including African American, Latinx and Chicanx, Asian American, and Indigenous peoples. The all-expenses-paid workshop will allow students to learn more about the English Department, visit graduate classes and co-curricular activities (lectures, film screenings, Research Workshops), meet with our graduate faculty and graduate students, and receive individual feedback from the faculty on their application materials for graduate school. Students will also have the opportunity to present their research to faculty. The workshop aims to introduce prospective students to a robust culture of mentoring essential for a rewarding graduate school experience, and a thriving life in academia.

Thanks to the generous support of the MSU Graduate School and the College of Arts and Letters, the fall 2022 MUSE workshop will cover the travel, lodging, and incidental expenses associated up to eight prospective students.
