Diversity Achievers Program

Lehigh University values a diverse, inclusive, and vibrant campus community. At the same time, we believe the best way for a student to learn whether a college or university is a good fit is by spending time on campus. As a result, we offer selected students interested in a culturally based overnight program the opportunity to immerse themselves in life at Lehigh for two days and one night through the Diversity Achievers Program (DAP). On Sunday, October 9 participants will interact with current students from around the world, learn about support services, enjoy dinner and fun at one of our local attractions, and will be hosted by a current Lehigh student in a residence hall. On Monday, October 10, 2016, DAP participants will attend a class, connect with student clubs and organizations, hear from the Office of Financial Aid, and get insightful tips on applying to Lehigh.

Required items:

Supplemental application requirements should be emailed in one pdf document and emailed to Leigha Adduci, Events Coordinator, at Please title the email Attn. DAP Application requirements.
