Recipients of the scholarships will also receive a $10,000 stipend.

Laurie Nichols, director of admissions, stated that “we are looking for any students who may be traditionally overlooked by graduate admissions processes.”

Eric Chasalow, dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, added that “a commitment to diversity is one of Brandeis’ core values, and some that we take very seriously. We have seen similar program provide benefits to our undergraduate students, so it made absolute sense to bring those benefits to the graduate student population.”
