The Rutgers English Diversity Institute (REDI), founded by Professor Cheryl A. Wall, 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. At REDI, students will learn about traditional and nontraditional subfields and critical approaches in English and American literary studies from Rutgers University faculty. 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 $750 stipend for participating in the program.

REDI alums have an amazing track record in gaining admission to prestigious English PhD programs!
