Application for U-RISE at Florida Atlantic University
The central goal of this program is to expand the pool of students from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) who engage in biomedical research at FAU. Students will participate in a three year curriculum that includes specialized courses in critical thinking, research approaches, and scientific communication. Students will participate in laboratory research at FAU, Scripps, or Max Planck. As rising juniors, they will attend a summer internship at a partner Research Intensive Institution. Students will be paired with an Academic Mentor, a Research Mentor and a Near-Peer Mentor (graduate student) to provide support. One-on-one mentorship will be complemented by a diverse set of workshops throughout the three-year program. We are currently seeking rising Freshman to enter the program starting in the fall of 2021. Students who are accepted into the program must commit to completing all three years. The program will cover partial full tuition costs, support for research and travel, and a monthly stipend of ~$1,100.
