NSF Research & Mentoring for Deaf Students
Through a strong mentoring network we want our deaf and hard of hearing students to be comfortable and included in research programs. We not only want to increase the number of deaf and hard of hearing students performing undergraduate research but to also get them ready to move on to graduate study. For more information, visit the program’s website.
