Overview

Become a Scholar

Thank you for your interest in the SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program. There are two ways to become a Doctoral Scholar.

1. If your state is participating and you’re in an eligible institution, apply through our online application.

2. If your institution partners with the Doctoral Scholars Program and you are interested in being a funded doctoral or dissertation scholar, email doctoral.scholars@sreb.org with your name, field of study, institution and admission status.

Your institution can partner with the program, or you could apply through our online application if your state is participating and you’re in an eligible institution.

Below you will find links to information about the types of program awards. Be sure to visit each page to determine eligibility.
