Program Information

The Department of Biology is proud to announce the receipt of a National Science Foundation grant aimed at enhancing educational opportunities in Biology for undergraduates, especially minority students. This unique diversity enhancement program explicitly combines:

  • Diversity curricula
  • Undergraduate mentoring
  • Research guided by faculty mentors

Eight high school seniors will be recruited to the Program in two groups over the course of the next two years and will be paired with a faculty mentor for their undergraduate education at UVM. Each of the eight students will be offered $32,000 in scholarship funds.

From their first day at UVM, students in the program will be involved with research in the lab of a faculty mentor. Students will participate in multi-year research projects, spanning diverse topics. Research projects will start with a colloquium devoted to developing peer-reviewed research proposals, followed by a summer field research project.
