CPMS Undergraduate Mentoring
The CPMS undergraduate mentoring program provides students with opportunities to work side-by-side with faculty on innovative research. These opportunities give students real experience that prepares them for either industry or top graduate programs. Last year, the college supported a record 953 undergraduate students in paid research positions (nearly a third of the college!). However, with over 3,000 students in our college, there are many students who still don’t get the chance to do research. This completed endowment will support an additional 150-200 undergraduate student researchers each year in perpetuity.
CPMS Graduate Fellowships
The strength of CPMS graduate programs depends largely upon the ability to recruit quality graduate students. Universities must provide competitive financial support packages to attract top graduate students in science-related fields. Graduate students are not only the front-line of CPMS research, but are critical to the mentoring of students at the undergraduate level. Resources for graduate fellowships allows CPMS to pursue these important objectives.
