Meet our RMAIS Graduate Fellows

The following GDPE Graduate Students were awarded fellowships to support their research as part of the RMAIS program. Each of the fellows committed to: mentoring an undergraduate in research; engaging with their faculty advisor as part of the research triad and mentor-mentee interactions; developing an RMAIS module on best-practices in mentoring, professional development, and/or women & gender in STEM in consultation with a faculty advisory & review board; participating in the Student Ecology Research Program (SERP) seminar series during which they implemented their module. Every person here exceeded expectations in every way. We are grateful for their hard work, willingness to share their materials, and commitment to diversity & inclusion in STEM.
