Students Thriving in the Academic Realm
STAR (Students Thriving in the Academic Realm) is another aspect of the RAIN Program. STAR is funded under the federal HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration) NWD (Nursing Workforce Diversity) grant which was awarded to the RAIN program and expanded support services to other students.
Students who meet the definition of URM (underrepresented minority), or are educationally/economically disadvantaged as defined by HRSA guidelines, can receive RAIN academic support services. Students need to complete a needs assessment survey/application in order to qualify.
