After completing their summer research projects, five Stanford undergraduates will return to their hometown high schools in Texas, Nevada, California and Jamaica to share their passion for science and engineering with students and teachers.

Their travel will be funded under a new program, the Diversity Inclusion and Innovation Fund, which was established in 2017 to support initiatives that advance the diversity of the Stanford community and foster inclusion.
