Overview

The Research Assistantships for Diverse Scholars (RADS) program intends to increase access and opportunities to graduate education for U.S. students from under-represented and under-served communities and to increase graduate student diversity at WSU and in our degree programs. RADS awards are funded through a partnership between the Graduate School and the prospective student’s department or program.
