The fellowship has helped me connect with fellow women in various STEM disciplines as well as different research opportunities on campus. Without the Women in STEM Fellowship, I would not have this network of amazing women on campus."

The SAF Research Fellows program will elevate the campuswide research culture to a whole new level for deserving upper level students. Twenty rising juniors or seniors will be selected this year to work with faculty on focused research projects for either two academic years or a summer and one academic year. By year two, we'll have twice as many students involved. Research Fellows will receive a stipend and supplementary funding toward their research project. I'm really excited about this high impact opportunity for our students!
