“Doctoral Intensive Research Awareness Experience in STEM Program for Caribbean Hispanic Students” 

The Doctoral Intensive Research Awareness Experience (DIRAE) Program will expand study abroad opportunities in STEM disciplines by preparing Caribbean Hispanic students with the necessary research skills to develop a successful doctoral dissertation through guidance, mentoring, and collaboration from faculty. It will be used as a mechanism to increase the participants’ chances to succeed in a STEM doctoral program and provide them better academic skills when pursuing advanced degrees in the U.S. Through the proposed collaboration, Universidad Politécnica de Puerto Rico will broaden participation of students within the region in study abroad, as well as provide a networking opportunity between potential doctoral students.
