SREB Doctoral and Dissertation Scholars Programs

The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) Doctoral Scholars Program is a program intended to change the racial landscape of college faculty. It’s goal is to increase the number of minority Ph.D students that seek a career as faculty on college campuses and universities.  SREB Doctoral Scholars receive benefits including financial support, career counseling, networking, research funds, and more. The SREB Dissertation Scholars Programs provides such opportunities to students who had not previously participated in the SREB Doctoral Scholars Program during the final year of their degree, while they complete their dissertation.

In 2018, five UM graduate students were selected for the SREB Doctoral Scholars Program. Click on the following link to read more.
