Fitchburg State University will launch a community of research fellows mentored by faculty this fall with a newly-announced grant from the Moderna Charitable Foundation.
The university’s Biology and Chemistry Department will lead the effort, targeting traditionally underserved populations to engage students in mentorship and high-impact practices as an undergraduate research community. Students will also be paid stipends for their time in the program.
“We are grateful for the support of the Moderna Charitable Foundation for this initiative that will lead to meaningful educational experiences for our students,” Fitchburg State President Richard S. Lapidus said. “The faculty mentorship and instruction that is built into this program will encourage student success while fostering the next generation of researchers.” Read the full story here.
