" I am truly honored to serve as a Millennium Fellow and join an initiative of scholars who are equally dedicated towards their pursuits. I hope that through the Millennium Fellowship I can help foster peer collaboration, put ideas into practice, and inspire others towards their mission. This Fellowship will serve as a platform to create social change within communities both locally and abroad, that might one day result in a more equitable world. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Research Awareness for Young Scholars (RAYS) Research Program

The program’s main objective is to educate young high school students interested in pursuing a career in STEM about collegiate biomedical research. Students that participate in the program will receive appropriate mentorship to help guide them in their specific science-based interests (biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, etc.) This mentorship will come from undergraduate/graduate researchers, as well as from faculty at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) to help establish professional contacts in their future field. In addition to mentorship, students will also be able to partake in seminars given by university faculty of active research labs and participate in research training/information sessions.
