The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to expand the Student Teams Achieving Results (STAR) program at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The expansion of the program will broaden the parameters of fielded projects, engage undergraduate students as well as graduate students from other universities and disciplines, and extend the timing of the assistance to provide year-round as well as ongoing engagement for STAR clients. The grant will support 20 STAR projects and 3 summer intern teams.
