The objectives are to better prepare students from diverse backgrounds for academic careers and to have them, at the same time, enrich the educational experiences of others. Thus, the program expands the academic “pipeline” in two ways.
DARE was initially created as a four-year pilot program for three cohorts of students on two-year fellowships. The first cohort of DARE Fellows was selected in spring 2008. The program has been extended to support eight cohorts of students. The application deadline for the sixth cohort is April 1, 2013.

Structured seminars and professional development modules to investigate and prepare for academic careers.
Mentorship with a Stanford faculty member in addition to the dissertation advisor.
Project to enhance the diversity of Stanford’s graduate student population, and to enrich the educational experience of the student community.
