SEISMIC Support for Students at Bridgewater State, with WCSA Steering Committee Member

WCSA Steering Committee member Colby King is a co-PI on the SEISMIC grant program at Bridgewater State University, which was recently funded through the National Science Foundation’s S-STEM program (NSF-DUE 1643475).

SEISMIC will involve scholars in interdisciplinary undergraduate research, science based service learning, and mentoring and cohort activities designed to improve scholars’ social, psychological, and cultural capital. The program funds scholarships and academic support for academically talented, low-income students. Over five years, cohorts of nine SEISMIC scholars will be admitted to the program each year with an award of $6,000 each, renewable for three years. Dr. Thomas Kling is directing the program along with Dr. Colby King, Dr. Stephen Waratuke and Dr. Jennifer Aizenman at BSU.
