For Students

The AIM Program

As Washington and Lee continues to intensify our focus on increasing the diversity of our student body and fostering a more inclusive environment, AIM as our Quality Enhancement Plan promises to be an excellent way to provide support and inclusion for students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. AIM is being modeled after the former Advanced Research Cohort (ARC) Program for STEM fields with the goal of empowering a select group of incoming first-year students from varied backgrounds, allowing them to return for their first year of college with an increased sense of belongingness and confidence.

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.
