Applications are available for OHSU’s 2012 Equity Summer Research Program, an exciting opportunity for disadvantaged students to spend 8 to 10 weeks over the summer working with faculty and graduate students in a research setting, learning new skills and gaining experience. Students will participate in weekly seminars and meetings, have an opportunity to give an oral presentation of their summer research, and receive career mentoring from OHSU faculty. A paid stipend is available for all students during the program.
To be eligible for this program, students will have completed at least one full year of college coursework. The most competitive applicants will have completed coursework in the basic sciences (e.g. biology, chemistry, neuroscience, biopsychology) and mathematics. The program is only open to applicants who have experience social or economic disadvantages.
