Special STEM Opportunities & Support
Biology students at the Mount have access to a wealth of opportunities: we have built strong structures of peer mentorship and faculty guidance into our program.
We encourage our students to begin research in their second year, and since we believe that learning to present scientific information is just as important as discovering it, our research students travel to conferences all over the country to present their findings. Virtually all student conference travel is funded either by grants or by the department itself.
The Mount’s Biology department currently holds $2.5 million in grant funding for student support and research, and our total grant funding over the last decade comes to more than $18 million.
