The Education Department has made all placements for the 2023 Summer Scholars program. We look forward to welcoming and introducing our new scholars very soon. All Postbaccalaureate Fellowship recipients will be notified of their placement in May.
Look out, we are launching a new Graduate Internship Program for 2024. The program will run from January to August.
The Education Department had a great time at NCUR’s Conference and 2023 Futures Fair in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. We met over 200 students and staff. As a sponsor at this year’s conference, we evaluated 28 posters and awarded two students from the University of Alabama at Birmingham for their research.
