Description 
We have an exciting program that pairs undergraduate students with research mentors to conduct a project in the wide-ranging meteorology, climate, radar engineering, and interdisciplinary topics being researched in Norman, Oklahoma, at the University of Oklahoma and its partner institutions on the University Research Campus. In addition to research, we help our participants learn more about the many careers in and around meteorology to help them explore and find career options that might suit them well. We hold several workshops and have one-on-one mentoring to help our participants build skills needed to succeed. Our goal is to help them decide whether a career in research is for them. All students are supported to attend a national conference, and can choose from many possibilities including the American Meteorological Society's (AMS) Annual Meeting, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society's (AISES) regional or national conferences, and the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS).
