Best Academic Mentoring Program (2002)
Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science
Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science, a mentoring program offered by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, recently received a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring, one of ten handed out nationwide, for the way it allows students in underserved communities to get a shot at a career in the sciences. Last year, 43 students participated, including 21 who took part in a ten-week internship in Boulder. Several students who've utilized the program in past years are now working full-time in the field.
