The Project SEED Program has hosted 43 high-school students since 2010. Most of these students have participated for two consecutive summers (i.e., the maximum allowed by the program). As shown in the list of fellows below, at least 38 of these SEED students are pursuing (or are planning to pursuit) a college degree in STEM as of 2018; a ~88% retention rate.
