The Rutgers English Diversity Institute (REDI) is a one-week summer program at the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University. REDI is designed for advanced college students and recent graduates whose cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds may contribute to diversity in the fields of English and American literary studies. The purpose of REDI is to encourage students to attend graduate school and to pursue careers as teachers and scholars in the field.

REDI activities will include seminars, lectures, workshops on applying for graduate school and on digital resources in literary studies, a trip to a research library and a cultural excursion to New York City.

Up to fifteen students, chosen from a national pool of applicants, will each receive a $500 stipend for participating in the program.

Please note the application deadline is March 1, 2019.
