My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center for Excellence in Education, McLean, VA, USA
I have the privilege of being an alumnus of the RSI (Research Science Institute) program, run by the Center of Excellence in Education (CEE). It is a unique organization, with the amazing and much-needed mission of popularizing STEM education and careers amongst our youth.
The impact CEE has made on my life cannot be summarized in a short review. However, I do wish to emphasize the following:
1. If there is one word that summarizes the essence of CEE, it is 'Merit'. CEE goes out of its way to support meritorious students, no matter their country, origin, income level. Getting into a CEE program is extremely difficult but tremendously rewarding.
2. CEE programs make a life-long impact. CEE supports its alumni in their choice of college, their onward career, their research and their continued involvement in mentoring future generations.
3. The relationships you build during the short duration of a CEE program stay with you forever. Think like-minded, super intelligent people, out to make a difference. It's 'Mensa on steroids' ! (I'm exaggerating a bit, but just a bit)
4. The organization is very well run. It has a caring, selfless attitude. No corners are cut, no hidden fees charged from students. The programs are top-notch in their quality and impact.
Organizations like CEE deserve our respect, effort, attention, resources.
