Overview

Donate to Support SREB Scholars
Add Your Name to the 2020 Giving Campaign

In honor of the program’s dedication to being “more than a check and a handshake” to Ph.D. scholars and over 1,000 graduates, we’ve established the 2020 Campaign. We invite all program alumni and constituents to help raise $30,000 by December 31, 2020. If we make our goal, a donor has graciously offered to match with another $30,000. All funds raised will go to support the program’s professional development and service grant funds.

Every penny goes to support scholars and graduates like yourself, and all donations are tax-deductible.

SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program

Increasing Faculty Diversity

More than one-third of America’s college students are people of color. But racial and ethnic minorities make up only small fractions of college faculty. Nationwide, about 5 percent of faculty are African-American, about 3 percent are Hispanic and about 1 percent are Native American. The SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program is working to change that.
