  • a 10-week Spring and/or Summer Research Experience,
  • research or professional mentoring,
  • funds for students teams to travel to conferences to present research,
  • participation in on-campus meetings and seminars to educate students on various topics related to careers in academia,
  • “wrap around” student support,
