Diversity Achievers Program: In-person Overnight Event

Lehigh University values a diverse, inclusive and vibrant campus community, and 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. This is why we offer select students the opportunity to immerse themselves in life at Lehigh for two days and one night through our culturally based overnight program, the Diversity Achievers Program (DAP). This year DAP will be held from Sunday, October 24, 2021 to Monday, October 25, 2021.

Throughout the weekend participants will connect with current students from around the world, learn about support services, have a classroom experience, and enjoy dinner and fun at one of our local attractions. 

Required items:

  • Diversity Achievers Program Application
  • Transcript (An unofficial transcript will be accepted)
  • Short Essay (500 words or less, prompt on the application)

Application materials are due by 11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, September 24, 2021. Only complete applications submitted by the deadline will be considered. Students selected for the program will be notified of their selection by our office. The decision regarding your application to the Diversity Achievers Program is not indicative of the potential outcome should you submit a general application to Lehigh University.

If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Castro, Director of Diversity Recruitment, at jec315@lehigh.edu, or email LUDiversity@lehigh.edu.

Please remember that due to the selective nature of the program, we are unable to accommodate all students who submit applications. Those unable or not selected to attend DAP are still encouraged to participate in one of our ongoing virtual visit opportunities.
