Advising Links

AIM Program

The mission of the Advanced Immersion and Mentoring (AIM) initiative is to instill an increased sense of confidence and belonging within incoming first-year students. As W&L furthers its ongoing commitment to a diverse and inclusive community, the continued development of AIM as our Quality Enhancement Plan is providing meaningful support and fostering connections for talented students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.

Nationally Competitive Fellowships

A full college education cannot exist within the walls of a classroom alone. That’s why we encourage and support students who decide to pursue nationally competitive fellowships. The Office of Fellowships is dedicated to helping students identify and apply for opportunities they feel will most benefit them both during and after their time at W&L.

Student Conference Travel

The Provost’s Office has limited funding to support students who are presenting their research at academic conferences. Students must have conducted the research under the supervision of a W&L faculty member and must be presenting either a paper or poster at the conference based on that research. Funding levels range from $50-$400 per student and are competitive. To request funding click the link above.
