Information for Faculty


What is involved in mentoring students in DSSI?

Faculty members mentor students on a research project to be presented at Drew’s Day of Scholars in the spring. Faculty also attend the weekly group meetings and ensure their students are participating in the programmatic elements/immersive experience requirements of DSSI in addition to performing their research.

What is the stipend?

The faculty stipend is $250 per week.

Who receives funding priority?

Tenure-track faculty who have never had a DSSI project receive highest funding priority. Those faculty members who have their own research funding or departmental funds to support mentored research will also be able to take part in the program.

What do I need to do to apply?

Once you and a student agree to propose a DSSI project, your student will fill out a student application form. This form will ask for details about the project that the student will complete under your mentorship. The Director will contact you about additional details.
