A few mentor and scholar highlights from the Tufts-Laidlaw Program

The Laidlaw Program has been wonderful at accelerating the minds and careers of several of my students. I have seen my Laidlaw Scholars thrive in the program. And, it has allowed us to work on projects that otherwise might have fallen between the cracks. In addition, the leadership experiences the students are very valuable (and in some ways life-changing) to my students. ~ Prof. Intriligator

"In a word, this partnership was…"

Oudin: Rewarding.

Srinivasan: Rewarding! And so we don’t say the same thing: enriching!


I love the Laidlaw Program. The length of the program really is a good way to get to know a student and their interests really well. I have a current Master’s student who is continuing on a project that we started as a Laidlaw Scholar, three years later! Because this opportunity includes a stipend, research funding, and leadership trainings, it is also one of those unique and amazing programs that is accessible to students of all economic backgrounds. ~ Prof. Crehan
