Discovery Scholars


Faculty who wish to serve as mentors will apply online through a link on the College of Arts and Sciences website. The Director of Discovery Scholars will make the initial selection of Faculty to participate and forward this to the College for approval. Any Faculty members with reports or other materials which have not been turned in to the College will be ineligible to participate and the College will inform the Director of who is ineligible.

Faculty who are selected to participate will then select a student whom they would like to mentor. This can be through a posting and interview process or the Faculty Mentor may have a student in mind when he/she applies to the program.
