Description

The Division of Materials Research (DMR) Partnerships for Research and Education in Materials Research (PREM) program aims to enable, build, and grow partnerships between minority-serving institutions and DMR-supported centers and/or facilities to increase recruitment, retention, and degree attainment (which collectively define the PREM pathway) by members of those groups mosthistoricallyunderrepresented in materials research, and at the same time support excellent research and education endeavors that strengthen such partnerships.
