Description:
The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Diversity Recruitment through Education and Mentoring Program "DREAM" is a 10 week summer program designed to increase the number of women and racially underrepresented groups in medical physics by offering research opportunities, outreach and strategic mentorship geared towards recruiting a more robust and diverse group of skilled undergraduate students in the field of medical physics. DREAM students will be placed into summer research and mentorship groups that are consistent with their research and career interests. DREAM fellows are selected on a competitive basis. Selected DREAM fellows are awarded $6,000 stipends. The stipend is based upon an expectation of 40-hour per week effort for 10 weeks (May to September) which is mutually suitable to the mentor and fellow.

Applicants shall have declared a major or be eligible to declare a major in physics, engineering, or other science, which requires mathematics at least through differential equations, modern physics/quantum mechanics, electricity and magnetism or equivalent courses in engineering sciences.
