The E.E. Just Program exemplifies the spirit of Ernest Everett Just (Class of 1907 Valedictorian), a pioneering cell biologist who made significant contributions to genetics and embryology.
The program promotes academic excellence, strategies for academic success, supportive community of STEM scholars, graduate students, postdoctoral and faculty mentoring. All EE Just scholars will receive funds to do research with science or engineering faculty at Dartmouth or at one of our affiliated research labs such as Microsoft research laboratories. EE Just scholars will also get to meet and interact with some of the world’s leading innovators in science, technology and medical research.
The program is student-centered, based on student responsibility towards each other's success. As first-year scholars, students will work with and be mentored by more advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and faculty.
In subsequent years, students will be expected to reach out in two directions, both to the next group of younger students who now occupy their earlier position(s), helping them with their work and integrating them into the Dartmouth community; and to more advanced students and faculty, who will continue to help with their work, while making them a more integral part of the community.
