The Future Achievers in Science and Technology (FAST) program provides high-achieving, college-bound high school seniors with an opportunity to travel to campus, stay in our residence halls, visit classes, learn about on-going research, complete an admission interview, and much more. The FAST program is FREE (including overnight accommodations, meals, and transportation to campus).
The FAST program is intended for students from groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM – women, underrepresented minorities, students from low income or rural backgrounds, students with disabilities, students who are first-generation to college.
