"STARS provided the foundation from which I have built my research experiences.  The good experience I had in STARS was the first, and crucial, step towards deciding to attend graduate school.  I also believe my work in STARS made me a more competitive applicant when applying for college and helped me gain admission to several top universities.  I still keep in touch with my STARS mentor and it has been valuable to have a contact like that."  Recent quote sent from a 2008 STARS graduate!
