As the WISE RP is dedicated to supporting the academic and professional pursuits of our students, we are always seeking additional resources. We appreciate financial gifts of all sizes which have ranged from as little as $5 to several thousand dolllars. Give now or read below about the initiatives WISE RP alumni are funding.
Summer Research Fellowship
WISE RP alumni and friends currently sponsor research fellowships for our students to conduct research with a University of Michigan faculty member in the sciences, engineering, mathematics, or health fields over the summer. Funding is applied to work stipend and housing/living expenses.
Learn more about WISE RP Summer Research Scholars here.
WISE RP Programming
You can also help us sponsor new Leadership Workshops for our student leaders and Study Groups for students in introductory classes. For example, a $250 gift would fund a study group facilitator for an entire semester.
Serve at WISE RP Events
In late January, WISE RP hosts our annual Alumni Weekend. Alumni interact with students by serving on a panel, speaking in small and large group settings, and networking over meals. To learn more about Alumni Weekend and how to get involved, click here.
If you are still a student, please consider serving at our student panel event in late September. As part of the panel, you would have the chance to give advice to first and second-year WISE RP students by sharing your own experiences and lessons you have learned. You can act as a role model and help inspire the next class of WISE RP women. To get involved, please contact Director, Chris Bass at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a faculty member or working professional in the STEM field, please consider joining WISE RP sophomore students for a dinner discussion at the Hill Dining Center in Mosher Jordan Hall. You would be giving the opportunity to share about your current work, career path, and give advice to female students aspiring to careers in the STEM fields. To get involved, please contact Associate Director, Nick King at email@example.com.
