TIP is a program designed to serve the top 10% of students with low SAT scores by providing them with small class sizes in entry-level courses, excellent instructors, enriched curriculum, extra discussion sections, and upper-division mentors to augment instruction and help with integration into university life. TIP is a four-year program that includes both Natural Sciences and Liberal Arts students with degree plans featuring interdisciplinary minors. This program is successful in helping students who graduate from small, rural high schools; have low socio economic status; are first in their family to attend college; or are members of an underrepresented group at the University.
Below are a few examples of how you can support our TIP students and mentors:
- $500 will help two students attend the Biology Intestive Summer Workshop
- $1,000 will provide a financial award for a mentor who has served TIP students for three years
- $2,500 will sponsor a special recognition event for TIP Scholars
