This October, the Attallah College of Educational Studies is partnering with Chapman’s Promising Futures Program (PFP) to offer a Grad School Prep Series. The three-part workshop series is designed to demystify the graduate school application process and connect Chapman’s first-generation (first-gen) college students to fellow colleagues in their respective programs (humanities, leadership, teacher education, health sciences, law, STEM, and business). The workshops will also help them prepare resumes, cover letters, and personal statements for grad school admissions or job applications.

First-gen Chapman students can RSVP to the following events via Handshake, the university’s career development and appointment platform:

The intention is for first-gen students to seek inspiration and leverage support from fellow colleagues to apply, matriculate, and graduate from their respective graduate programs, eventually fostering an environment of transformative change.
