Pathways to Research

The goal of the Pathways to Research Program (P2R) is to expose EOP undergraduate students to research opportunities and research-based graduate programs.  With the assistance of their graduate mentor, students will determine their short-term goal for the quarter and long term goal for the school year related to the exploration of and involvement in research.  Students will engage in bi-weekly meetings with their mentor to report on progress and plan next steps to reach those goals.  P2R is a two-quarter commitment (Winter and Spring).  Mentees will receive a $300 stipend upon successful completion of the program.
