Grand Rapids Area Pre-College Engineering Program The Grand Rapids Area Pre-College Engineering Program (GRAPCEP) is administered by Davenport College and jointly sponsored and funded by Pfizer, Inc., and VARI. The program is designed to provide selected high school students who have plans to major in science or genetic engineering in college the opportunity to work in a research laboratory. In addition to training in research methods, the students also learn workplace success skills such as teamwork and leadership. The three 2002 GRAPCEP students are Marie Graves Union High School Grace Miguel Central High School Jeanine Myles Ottawa Hills High School 73

Summer Student Internship Program The VARI summer student internships were established to provide college students with an opportunity to work with professional researchers in their fields of interest, to use state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and to learn invaluable people and presentation skills. At the completion of the 10- week program, the students summarize their projects in oral presentations. From September 2001 through August 2002, VARI hosted 38 students from 13 colleges and universities, both in formal summer internships and in other student positions during the year.
