The Exceptional Research Opportunities Program (EXROP) aims to ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is prepared to assume leadership roles in science, including among college and university faculties responsible for developing the next generation of scientists. To do so, EXROP leverages the resources and expertise of HHMI’s Science and Science Education departments.
Since EXROP’s inception in 2003, 930 undergraduates from 175 colleges and universities have been matched with 243 HHMI investigators, professors, early career scientists, and Janelia group leaders. Two hundred sixty-five of the 555 EXROP alumni who have earned a baccalaureate degree have gone on to graduate programs (HHMI Web http://www.hhmi.org/developing-scientists/exceptional-research-opportunities-program-exrop).
