Recent News & Upcoming Events
"I am forever grateful for a program like REVU. If I never would have applied or been accepted, I probably would not be considering a Ph.D. program right now. It was a great experience to show myself that I can be a contributing member in a real lab environment. A huge problem that veterans face in academia is imposter syndrome and feeling like they don't belong. The REVU program gives us a real chance of proving to ourselves that we can succeed."
