Needed: Research spots in CALS for high-schoolers in the PEOPLE program

CALS mentors are needed to provide research opportunities this summer to students in the rising senior level of the PEOPLE program, UW-Madison’s most comprehensive pre-college program designed to attract underrepresented student populations. The students, all high school seniors-to-be, come from primarily urban areas and tribal nations in Wisconsin and will spend six weeks on campus this summer having an immersive pre-college enrichment experience. Students interested in CALS will be given lab or field placements in a lab counseled by a mentor and will learn about various research fields and careers in agriculture and related sciences. Stipends for students are provided by the PEOPLE Program.
