FYRE (First Year Research Exposure)


First Year Research Exposure (FYRE) is an academic diversity initiative in the UWL College of Science and Health. Every year, we offer 15 undergraduate students of color the opportunity to participate in career and major exploration activities and enroll in gateway classes together. All FYRE students are matched with peer mentors and tutors to help them make a smooth transition to college life. Students who meet program expectations receive a $1000 scholarship during their second year at UWL.

We recruit incoming first year students to our program every Spring -- please get in touch with our staff if you'd like more information about how to apply.
