Demi Moore, a Hunter Macaulay Honors Scholar, is headed to Yale as an ESI-PREP Scholar.
ESI-PREP (Emerging Scholars Initiative-Post-Baccalaureate Research Program) serves high-achieving college graduates from groups historically underrepresented in the humanities and social sciences. Its one-year, research-intensive curriculum prepares talented students for the rigors of top doctoral programs. Participants receive free tuition, a stipend for living expenses, health insurance, mentoring, and other benefits.
Moore was one of nine scholars accepted this year from a nationwide pool of 275 applicants. She is the first Hunter student to win the Yale scholarship since its creation five years ago. She’ll conduct a yearlong research project on black political thought, working with a member of Yale’s political science faculty.
Hunter congratulates this outstanding student on her latest achievement. Our academic community looks forward to seeing the results of her research and to learning where she decides to pursue her PhD.
