Students interested in the fields of biology, chemistry, bioengineering, mathematics and other STEM-related disciplines will have the opportunity to receive hands-on research experience, which encourages collaborative efforts with professionals in such areas.
In addition, undergraduate students enrolled in the program will be mentored through their individual career development plans.
This is great news for students with STEM-related interests and HBCU preferences, as the award will provide the funds to ensure adequate education and opportunity to these students at Stillman College.
Additionally, in the era of COVID-19 where funding is limited across the board, this acquisition is quite remarkable.
It is but one example of how the institution's leadership grasps at every opportunity to serve its student body with what's necessary to not only receive adequate education but to also compete in an ever-evolving world.
