Building off the Great Minds Scholars program is the Great Minds/CoMPASS (GMC) scholarship program. Funded by the National Science Foundation’s Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program, the GMC program provides additional financial support for students who are recipients of the Great Minds Scholarship.
The program is led by principal investigators Funmi Ayobami and Kathy Chen. They, along with the GMC Scholar Support team, are monitoring the scholars’ learning, academic outcomes, research, campus involvement, and professional development as they matriculate through WPI. The program currently includes 20 cohorts across the Classes of 2024 and 2025, and is set to conclude in 2025.
