About the REAL Program

The College of Arts and Sciences developed the REAL Program to allow students to discover their interests, gain a rich understanding of a particular field, discern their career goals, and explore future employment fields. We believe financial means should not determine whether or not a student can participate in internships, research, or creative works opportunities. Committed to providing paid experiential learning opportunities for students, the REAL program provides stipends up to $5,000 for undergraduate opportunities lasting up to 10 weeks over the summer. In 2018, its first year, the REAL Program distributed $550,000 to over 125 students.

Our department supports the REAL Program with three fellowships:  The Marilyn Fernandez, Alma Garcia and the Charles Powers Sociology Fellowships.

For more information about the REAL Program, please contact Daniel Iritani, Director of External Relations for the College of Arts and Sciences.
