Chemistry / Renewable Energy

Program Description

Activities include summer research and training with UA faculty, chemistry labs to build knowledge, professional development, and a research conference. Project goals include enhancing the competitiveness of HBCU student participants as applicants to graduate programs, preparing participants for the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce by reinforcing hands-on lab experiences that were lost during the COVID-19 pandemic and providing students with content knowledge, skills, experiences and confidence to engage in entrepreneurial pursuits in the STEM arena. Bridge program activities will take place through resident summer programs at UA, as well as student exchanges between UA and Stillman students during the academic year.
