Ep 2:39 Blk+In Grad School: Grad School Success Summit

We are delighted to bring back Allante Whitmore, PhD candidate in Civil Engineering at Carnegie Mellon, impresario behind the podcast and website Blk+In Grad School, and founder of the 4-years-running virtual Grad School Success Summit, coming up June 14-16. Allante tells us all about the Summit, and how it covers all the things she wished she had known as a first-gen, Black graduate student when she was starting out–especially about how to prepare for grad school, managing finances, and staying healthy. As she explains: it’s not just the knowledge that is critical, but the community, and knowing you’re not alone. New and current BIPOC grad students welcome for an amazing, TOTALLY FREE, lineup of speakers and some “wine down” time afterward on IG Live. The Professor Is In is thrilled to be able to sponsor the Summit this year.
