8ofyo7ormq bz project true mentorship feature 1206 2016 720

In Project TRUE, small teams of high school students are paired with a Fordham University undergraduate student, who serves as a near-peer research mentor.

Research teams work out of the Bronx Zoo and are supported by a WCS conservation educator and a Fordham University graduate student (Biology).

Additionally, several WCS scientists and Fordham University faculty provide support and advisement.

Altogether, Project TRUE is a 30+ person team working together to support each other and to conduct urban ecology research. After the summer, you will be part of our growing alumni community (nearly 300 in total) that will continue to support you in your personal and professional pathway.
