How the SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program Works

General information

How Does the Program Work?

SREB helps states and institutions identify promising doctoral candidates who are admitted to programs of study on their own merits. Then, because they may be the first-generation college graduates or the only person of color in their program, the SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program provides these doctoral students with financial support, leadership opportunities, networking events, and intensive professional development to help them finish their degrees and consider a career in academia.
