Four Saint Augustine's University students were recently selected as Gateways Fellows in the Gateways to Science Careers program (G2SC) at Stanford University. The students are: Justin Williams-Woodstock, G.a., Raymond K. Smith III-Chicago, Ill., Candice Brown- Charlotte, N.C. and Mallory D. Felder, Jr.- Charlotte, N.C. The students were selected from an application and interview process.
The Gateways to Science Careers program was created to increase access into science careers for minority students. Additionally, the G2SC seeks to provide innovative research experiences for the students.
“There is undoubtedly a disproportionate amount of minorities seeking employment in the science field,” stated Dr. Dianne Boardley Suber, president of Saint Augustine's University. “On behalf of Saint Augustine's University, we salute Stanford for hosting such a program and applaud the students’ diligence as they work to bridge the gap in the scientific field.”
