Students develop a project proposal with the help of a mentor and submit a formal application to the Scholarship Pathways Program in Pillar 1. The program coordinators select up to 15 students per year to participate based on the merit of the project proposals. Acceptance into the program is a competitive process.
During the program, students complete their project by developing a poster and writing an abstract and manuscript suitable for publication. Students are encouraged to present their findings at a regional, national or international conference. Program participants work in conjunction with their mentor and program coordinators to successfully complete their project.
The program goals and timeline can viewed in the Scholarship Pathways Program brochure.
