What is the SER Scholars Program?

The goal of the Sustaining Excellence in Research Scholars program is to introduce STEM students to the world of science and engineering early in their career by matching them with research internships, providing additional tutoring for students that have fewer than nine STEM AP credits, and engaging the students in a diverse community of scholars.
