Diversity Achievers Program

Our deadline to apply for the Diversity Achievers Program has passed. We encourage you to visit campus through another visiting opportunity, listed on the Admissions Events Calendar. Thank you.

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 26, 2014 participants will interact with current students from around the world, learn about support services, enjoy dinner with J. Leon Washington, Vice Provost of Admissions and Financial Aid, and spend the night in a residence hall. On Monday, October 27, 2014, DAP participants will attend our Senior Open House and attend a class.

Required items:

  • Diversity Achievers Program Application
  • Transcript (An unofficial transcript will be acceptable)
  • SAT/ACT results
  • Résumé

Required elements not available for online/electronic submission should be faxed to (610) 758-6959, Attn: Diversity Achievers Program, or emailed to Jackie Cichonski, Events Coordinator, at jac712@lehigh.edu. These items should only be submitted following completion of the DAP application. Application materials are due by noon EST on Thursday, September 18, 2014. Only complete applications submitted on time will be considered. We will notify those selected to participate within two weeks. Admission to this program is not related to admission to Lehigh University.

If you have any questions, please contact Maria Asayag at mga210@lehigh.edu, Beth Guzzo at ecg211@lehigh.edu or Jackie Cichonski at jac712@lehigh.edu.


Those unable or not selected to attend DAP are still encouraged to attend Senior Open House on Monday, October 27, 2014. Families are welcome to Open House as well.
