The University of Nevada, Reno is proud to offer a new program - at no cost to students - designed to increase the recruitment, retention and career success of first-generation college and historically underrepresented students in graduate programs. Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), our GAIN Scholars program engages incoming Ph.D. students for two, three-week summer preparatory camps, as well as additional professional development, mentoring and social network support activities during their first two years of graduate school. Students completing the NSF GAINS program will learn how to code apps for citizen science research, how to design experiments and analyze data using the R programming language and how to create immersive virtual reality videos of their graduate experiences.
