I work on two funded projects which seek to promote the career development of underrepresented undergraduate students. The description of each and links to the programs websites are below. If you are an undergraduate who qualifies for these programs and have questions, feel free to contact me.
- Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program: This program is a is a two-year experiential conservation training program for undergraduates who are interested in careers in conservation and in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field. The program is run through UF, but accepts students from UF, Cornell University, North Carolina State University, University of Arizona, and the University of Idaho.

- MARC GatorSTAR Program (Maximizing Access to Research Careers, Gator Student Training in Academic Research): This program supports undergraduate students at UF who are underrepresented minorities and want to pursue a PhD degree in biomedical or behavioral science-related disciplines.
