Discovery Through Research

This initiative funds research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, including experiential learning and remote scholarly activities. These experiences are proven to have an enormous impact on students’ growth and career success.

Philanthropic support would enable more students to have such impactful research experiences.

We believe in the transformational power of education and provide scholarships to alleviate the financial burden of students. Over 75 percent of our student body receive some form of financial aid. Scholarships help alleviate barriers to their education, allowing them to focus on their studies and career aspirations.
