The application for the Fall Diversity Program is available now and due in late August. The exact deadline will be posted by the end of June. For your convenience, the prompts are listed below.
Please note: You will need a copy of your unofficial high school transcript through junior year; you will be asked to upload a copy to your application. You will also be asked to write one essay, so it may be beneficial to write the essay before starting the application. This essay prompt is the same one you will find on the Common Application, and it is okay to use the same essay for both applications. Here is the prompt:
At Pitzer, five core values distinguish our approach to education: social responsibility, intercultural understanding, interdisciplinary learning, student engagement and environmental sustainability. As agents of change, our students utilize these values to create solutions to our world’s challenges. Please answer only ONE of the following prompts in 650 words or less.
- Incorporating one or more of our core values, how would you contribute to solving a local or global issue of importance to you?
- Reflecting on your involvement throughout high school or within the community, how have you engaged with one or more of Pitzer’s core values?
