The W. E. B. Du Bois Society is an academic and cultural enrichment program designed to engage secondary school students of African descent who attend academically competitive public, parochial, and independent institutions. Hosted by the Du Bois Institute and the Ella J. Baker House in Dorchester, the Du Bois Society provides young people with an opportunity to develop study skills and teamwork as they reflect on readings selected by Harvard professors. Director Jacqueline Rivers also regularly consults with program directors from around the country who seek to model their initiatives after the Du Bois Society’s innovative achievement-focused goals.
The W. E. B. DuBois Society Junior Research Fellowship is a virtual summer educational and research employment opportunity for low-income high school students of African descent from the Boston area.
The program will run for 6 weeks from July 7 to Aug 14.
