Student Research Opportunities Supporting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Washington University in St. Louis Endure Summer Program. The Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) ENDURE summer research program prepares undergraduates from diverse backgrounds for neuroscience PhD programs. We combine outstanding research training, a rigorous curriculum and an empowering support system so participants thrive on their path to graduate school and beyond. With support from the NIH Blueprint ENDURE initiative and Washington University, accepted students are funded for up to two summers and trips to the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. Overall, the program embeds students in a network of neuroscientists and enhances the success of trainees towards our goal of increasing diversity in neuroscience.

Washington University in St Louis BioMedRAP. The BioMedRAP selects participants based on academic achievement, leadership, and commitment to diversity. We seek applicants who have challenged themselves and excelled academically; demonstrate experience overcoming substantial educational, cultural or economic obstacles; are first-generation college students, or can demonstrate a strong interest in bringing diverse people together.  We encourage applications from individuals who come from rural or inner-city areas and individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research — specifically African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, women and those with disabilities. Applications also are encouraged from international students currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the United States.

University of Alabama SPIN Program. University of Alabama is seeking to train students traditionally under-represented in STEM careers, first-generation college students, students without extensive neuroscience research opportunities at their home institutions, and students with Ph.D. focused career aspirations.
 
Johns Hopkins SIP Program. Summer Internship Program (SIP) support students from underrepresented racial and economic backgrounds and students with disabilities to conduct research in laboratories at Johns Hopkins as part of an immersive 10-week program. The Department of Neuroscience and the Kavli Neuroscience Discovery Instittue support these summer internships for undergraduate students considering graduate studies in neuroscience and related ares.
 
Johns Hopkins PREP Program. Post-baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) provides post-baccalaureate students from underrepresented groups or from disadvantaged backgrounds with the support to work full-time in a laboratory at Hopkins. PREP students spend one or two years strengthening their research background and increasing thei competitiveness for PhD applications.
 
Summer Neuroscience Internship Program (SNIP) at the University of Florida. SNIP aims to support college students from diverse backgrounds who seek to pursue doctoral (Ph.D.) training in neuroscience and prepare for rewarding careers in biomedical research education and enterprise.
