Research Programs and Fellowships
The MBRS RISE Program was developed by the National Institutes of Health in response to the observation that the number of underrepresented minority faculty employed in biomedical research nationally, in universities and in industry, does not proportionally represent the number of underrepresented minority students currently enrolled in universities. A primary reason for this condition is a scarcity of Hispanic, African-American, and American Indian Ph.D.s with training and expertise in biomedical research areas.
"Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) is a special research training support activity of NIGMS. Its goals are to increase the number and capabilities of scientists from underrepresented minority groups who are engaged in biomedical research and to strengthen science curricula and student research opportunities at institutions with substantial minority enrollments in order to prepare minority students for research careers.
The New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation (New Mexico AMP) is designed to increase the enrollment and graduation rate of historically underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The McNair Program aims to prepare first-generation college students or students from groups underrepresented in graduate education for doctoral study. It is one of the federal TRIO Programs and is funded through the U.S. Department of Education.
The Undergraduate Research Scholars Program is intended to serve as a training ground for the next generation of biological and medical researchers in the United States. It combines hands-on laboratory experience with seminars and coursework designed to create a community of undergraduate research scholars. Up | Down | Top | Bottom
