Two Students Accepted into UCLA’s Ph.D. Preparation Program
Students Jose Cervantez and Brianna Davis were selected to participate in the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)’s CC2PhD Scholars Program.
The CC2PhD Association at UCLA selects 21 underrepresented community college students of color to participate in the one-year introductory level research and Ph.D. preparation program.
Jose hopes to transfer to UCLA and further his studies in clinical psychology. He would like to pursue a career as a research professor after he completes his graduate education.
Sociology major Brianna would like to transfer to the University of California, San Diego to study sociology and political science. She hopes to land a career in education policy for a non-profit or government agency.
Jose and Brianna will conduct an independent social science research project, and present their research at the CC2PhD Undergraduate Research Conference in May 2018. They will receive assistance through the CC2PhD Saturday Academies, a $300 research grant, an assigned CC2PhD graduate student mentor, and a community college faculty mentor.
