This year, our fundraising priority is GRI's Post-Doctoral Fellow for Academic Diversity.
The objective of this initiative is to attract more high quality researchers to W&M, increase the diversity of researchers at GRI, and provide additional mentored research opportunities for undergraduate students, especially those from under-represented groups. In addition to the goals articulated above, the GRI postdoctoral fellow will develop skills increasingly in demand in higher education – applying for and securing external funding that will support research here at W&M.
In spring 2020, Provost Agouris invested seed funding to hire two post-docs under the auspices of this program; we now seek to make it sustainable for the long term.
Note: If you would like us to allocate your gift to the Post-Doctoral Fellow for Academic Diversity program, please add "Post-Doc for Academic Diversity" to the comments section of the giving form.
