DREU is a highly selective program that matches students with a faculty mentor for a summer research experience at the faculty mentor’s home institution. The deadline for application is Feb 15, 2018.

DREU interns have the opportunity to be directly involved in a research project and interact with graduate students and professors on a daily basis. This experience is invaluable for those who are considering graduate school; DREU will provide a close-up view of what graduate school is really like and increase interns’ competitiveness as an applicant for graduate admissions and fellowships. Faculty mentors will have the opportunity to work on their research project with new students from other institutions and to mentor future graduate students.

DREU is unique from REUs because the DREU program will cover the cost of female and underrepresented minorities that are matched with female and minority faculty. Faculty that participate in this program must be research faculty at a PhD granting institution.
