Recent Student Testimonials
“I gained so many things from the SRP but overall it was the confidence I gained that really stood out to me. Not only did I gain confidence in myself and my ideas, I am now confident that research is the career I want to pursue in the future. This knowledge that I love doing research is really reassuring and I now have a very solid stepping stone on which I can start to build my career.”
“The SRP was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life; I am very grateful for the program, as it not only facilitated an internship in a lab related to what I intend to study in university, but it also created meaningful opportunities for students like me, who did not have much of a background or connection to academic fields. I have made lasting friends whom I will cherish, and have also changed my mindset on certain career options.”
“My experience in the SRP was life-changing! I was inspired by scientists to pursue what I love and to change the world. This program has given me the confidence to pursue a career in a field where I may be a minority because I know that many hardworking women will be by my side.”
