Science Horizons will provide significant mentoring for several first-year students each year. In the fall, Science Horizons discussions will revolve around all aspects of research—how to get involved, including the possibilities available on and off campus, the benefits, the role of undergraduate research in future careers, and our current students’ research projects. During the spring semester, Science Horizons discussions will revolve around “big questions” and emphasize interdisciplinary problems in biology that will influence students’ perceptions about the impact of biology on their world.

Students interested in the Science Horizons program can apply using the form below.  Selected students will have the opportunity to consider applying in spring for a paid summer internship.
