"CAMP has been one of the best experiences of my life. CAMP added an extra dimension to my research that made me stand out among my peers. Networking and meeting important people to help with my future plans have been priceless. It is easy to get lost and lose focus, but thanks to CAMP the path is clear and the road not so difficult."

"The CAMP program gave me opportunities to share, discuss, and refine my progression through the research process. In my time spent as a CAMP scholar, I presented my own scientific research for the first time, traveled abroad for the first time on scholarship, and was accepted into graduate school. I am forever thankful to the CAMP program for helping to guide me on my journey toward academic success."
