Spring 2014 Forest GUMP

Forest GUMP was created to promote academic excellence and act as a resource for undergraduate students as well as prepare graduate students to become research leaders and effective mentors.


Forest GUMP will pair graduate and undergraduate students to develop and support mutually beneficial relationships between these two student bodies. The program operates on a quarterly basis, with new applications and mentorship pairs created each quarter. We will do our best to accommodate every student interested in participating in ForestGUMP.
