Project Plan

Project Plan

The project is expected to take 3 years for completion.

Year One

The first year will focus on designing and implementing the recruitment plan to attract candidates.  SIS and science organization participants will also work together to match incoming students with faculty advisors and science organization mentors.

Year Two

In August 2012, students will begin their course work and organizational work experiences.

Year Three

At the beginning of their second year in the program, students may choose to either strengthen training to encompass more service at the same location of their internship, or to broaden their experience by continuing training in a second institution.
