Our Mission

DARE is a UC Berkeley program created to match undergraduate students with research opportunities in EECS and to promote diversity. Our mission is to encourage and assist students in finding long lasting research opportunities that also fit their interests and abilities. We welcome all interested students with strong academic performance to apply.

We discovered that the most challenging barrier to participating in research for students is reaching out to professors and finding a match that works for both the student and the professor. Our goal is to act as an active liaison to remove this barrier and make electrical engineering and computer science research more readily accessible, as well as encourage diversity of thought in these growing fields.

This program is supported and funded by the .
