The first cohort of ASCEND Scholars successfully completed their two-year program and were celebrated by their peers, family, and Morgan State University staff and faculty on Thursday evening, May 11, 2017. The Scholars showcased the findings from the research projects they initiated during the 2015 Summer Research Institute (SRI). There were a total of six research teams:

 

The Scholars have been provided with the theoretical, methodological, applied, and practical skills needed to pursue graduate education. They have been exposed to diverse research perspectives, challenged to think creatively, learned to question with vigor and passion, and are motivated and dedicated to pursuing their dreams to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. Six Scholars graduated from the university this May.

The Diversity Program Consortium Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA is supported by Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health / National Institutes of General Medical Sciences under award number U54GM119024.
