How STEM Routes Can Support You

STEM career paths are wrought with secret handshakes and unspoken rules which (rather than selecting for the most motivated, meritorious scientists) too often block students from accessing research and innovation. Navigating the uphill PhD battle often requires a map of steps to making conscious, informed decisions about your future STEM career. While advisors and professors are passionate about supporting students, without key background information, many students don’t know what to ask.

STEM Routes unites existing research opportunities and programs at CU Boulder while offering training to prepare students for internships and research experiences.
