Students Exploring and Embracing Diversity
ApplyThe application deadline for SEED has now passed. Thanks to all those who applied!
Founded on the principles of pluralism, tolerance and inclusion, Brandeis is a place where exceptional young minds from diverse backgrounds come together to form a unique and vibrant campus community. Students Exploring and Embracing Diversity (SEED) will shed light on multiculturalism and social justice at our dynamic university.
SEED 2014 is Friday, November 7 through Sunday, November 9, 2014.
SEED attendees will stay on campus for a weekend of specialized academic programming and community building. Participants will also attend Fall Preview Day on Sunday, which is open to all prospective students and their families. SEED aims to expose students from diverse backgrounds to the overall Brandeis experience by highlighting on-campus resources that focus on multiculturalism and social justice.
Students who attend SEED will have a chance to:
- Meet current Brandeis student leaders and distinguished faculty
- Stay overnight in a residence hall with current students
- Connect with the Brandeis Intercultural Center and a number of Brandeis’s arts- and culture-related student clubs
- Learn more about the admissions process and join an application workshop led by admissions staff
- Attend an optional interview with admissions staff and alumni
Travel scholarships: Scholarships are available to cover students’ transportation costs to and from Brandeis. All meals and accommodations will be provided.
Important dates: Students will be notified on a rolling basis, but no later than Oct. 20, regarding the outcome of their SEED application.
Eligibility: Students must be rising high school seniors and currently reside in the United States to be eligible to attend SEED. Preference will be given to students who are underrepresented in higher education, including first-generation, low-income, and minority students.
