I was part of the 2014-2015 cohort, and I can personally say this has been one of the most enriching experiences I’ve had. I highly encourage fellow graduate students at UF interested in a career in academia to apply for this program. I would be happy to answer questions any interested person might have ([log in to unmask]).
