This is an up-to-date (as of August 2009) list of FALL diversity overnight programs offering free transportation/room/board. Open to ALANA students (including Asians) unless otherwise noted. I've provided contact information only for confirmed '09 programs.

Sources: Thanks to entomom and http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/hispanic-students/645766-diversity-weekend-opportunities.html for the research jumping-off point. I also referenced a PDF file called "multicultural-students" listing '06 programs, found somewhere through Google and saved to my computer.

If you have updated information on the schools marked ?, please let me know. I will try to keep this updated.

    Thanks Keilexandra very much for this list. I would suggest this gets stickied. I would've never found out about these programs if not for CC, and that was on the Amherst forum. It took me a ton of research to sort through all of them for colleges I'm interested in, and I've ended up applying to the Amherst, Williams, and Middlebury ones. I think that they're wonderful opportunities and that it's important for kids to know they're out there. Thanks again!

    I got an invitation from Scripps. I kind of wanted to go but since there's a ridiculously small chance that I'll be going there (LAC + so far away + all women) I decided not to take the spot or the grant from someone who actually wants to go. Washington University in St. Louis has a Discovery Weekend not limited to URMs but that is all-expenses paid and by invitation.

    ^ Is Wash U's weekend in the fall? I know they have one in the Spring for ALANA students (friend went and said it was majority Asian).

    EDIT: Found the link. Doesn't appear to pay expenses, though; that part is probably by invitation.

    Thanks for the updated info guys.

    this list was very helpful. thanks so much!
    i was actually googling Middlebury's multicultural weekend program and came across this page ^^.
    i'd love to go to WUSTL for theirs, but unfortunately it looks like the deadline was august 28th.

    Yurtle,

    Have you heard back from Scripps? I actually decided to apply for the Scripps travel grant. I was reading about Scripps and the Claremont colleges and I really liked the idea. The FAQ also explicitly stated that if I wasn't sure about Scripps or women's colleges, I was still welcomed to come to the program. Scripps would be an out-of-the-box college for me, but I want to visit - I want to make sure I'm not missing out on something that might actually be the right fit for me.

    I applied on the 27th and got approved for a travel grant on the 28th. Best of luck to you!

    I faxed my transcripts, which may have helped. I think my financial situation helped as well. We have a very low-income and are strongly affected by Governor Markell's (your governor's) pay cuts for state employees. My mom works for Delaware.

    Mine was faxed from the school, as well, so let's hope I get a response soon. But I think that Scripps won't care to pay for Asian diversity, being as it's in California and gets plenty already.

    Minor updates.
    ---

    This is an up-to-date (as of August 2009) list of FALL diversity overnight programs offering free transportation/room/board. Open to ALANA students (including Asians) unless otherwise noted. I've provided contact information only for confirmed '09 programs.

    Sources: Thanks to entomom and http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/hispanic-students/645766-diversity-weekend-opportunities.html for the research jumping-off point. I also referenced a PDF file called "multicultural-students" listing '06 programs, found somewhere through Google and saved to my computer.

    If you have updated information on the schools marked ?, please let me know. I will try to keep this updated.

    Anyone here ever been to one of these? How diverse are they usually? Like what percentage of African-Americans/Hispanics are usually present?
