For Students

The ARC Program

The ARC (Advanced Research Cohort) Program is aimed at select incoming first-year students to Washington and Lee with an interest in STEM areas. We invite these students to engage in a unique research opportunity: to work with faculty and current W&L students in conducting exciting original investigations. In addition to this intensive science research experience, the ARC program includes workshops on STEM careers, ethics, and policy questions, as well as a series of leadership seminars designed to empower students in both their academic studies and their overall impact on Washington and Lee. We seek to encourage both a strong sense of community and a cohort of student leaders in STEM areas.

Student Conference Travel

The Provost’s Office has limited funding to support students who are presenting their research at academic conferences. Students must have conducted the research under the supervision of a W&L faculty member and must be presenting either a paper or poster at the conference based on that research. Funding levels range from $50-$400 per student and are competitive. To request funding click the link above.
