Welcome to the home for Rutgers University's Highlands to Piedmont: Geoscience Scholar Program in Newark, NJ web site. This collaborative program is supported through a grant from the National Science Foundation's Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) Program. The OEDG program is designed to address the fact that certain groups are underrepresented in the geosciences relative to the proportions of those groups in the general population. The primary goal of the OEDG Program is to increase participation in the geosciences by African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans (American Indians and Alaskan Natives), Native Pacific Islanders (Polynesians or Micronesians), and persons with disabilities.
