What is GO FoRWARD?

GO FoRWARD is a program offered through UWM’s Department of Geosciences. Through funding by the National Science Foundation, GO FoRWARD provides first and second year undergraduate students from groups underrepresented in geosciences a paid opportunity during the summer to learn about the geosciences discipline and its career opportunities. There are experiences throughout the academic year to maintain the GO FoRWARD community.

Students in GO FoRWARD will get to:

  • Learn about the geosciences in a fun atmosphere.
  • Conduct research in the geosciences.
  • Meet working geoscientists to learn about their careers.
  • Experience one-on-one academic mentoring from faculty and geoscience students.
  • Create friendships.
  • Join a supportive academic community.
  • Earn a $2000 stipend.
