For Students

The AIM Program

The mission of the Advanced Immersion and Mentoring (AIM) initiative is to instill within incoming first-year students an increased sense of confidence and belonging. As Washington and Lee furthers its ongoing commitment to a diverse and inclusive community, the development of AIM as our Quality Enhancement Plan will provide meaningful support and foster connections for talented students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.

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.
