STEM and come from an economically disadvantaged background**

Want to perform research at one of our partner Universities in RI,

get paid, and participate in free college and company visits? 


Nominations and applications will be coming this spring. Stay tuned for more details and check out our site).


Are you a scientist in RI (academia, government, or industry) that is interested in mentoring a high school student? Or would you like to coordinate a site-visit to showcase different career opportunities for students with backgrounds in Chemistry? Or would you like to donate to help support students in Project SEED? Please reach out to Professor Robinson ( to talk more!
