Marshall University Summer Research Internship for Minority Students

Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine (MU JCESOM) Graduate Program is offering the Summer Research Internship for Minority Students (SRIMS) for its 12th year!

The SRIMS program includes nine weeks of graduate-level research in the field of biomedical sciences. Participants receive formal research training while expanding their learning experience through workshops, seminars on current topics, mentoring and professional networking.

The vision behind Marshall’s commitment to this program is twofold:

  1. To establish a pipeline of diverse, underrepresented students into health-related research.
  2. To enrich the current research through an added diversity of ideas, perspectives, and cultures.

Each year, applications from undergraduate and underrepresented minority-in-science students who have not graduated by August of the program year are considered. We are unable to accommodate international students.

A stipend of $3,000 will be provided to each participant for the nine-week experience. Participants will receive free room and board, and travel to and from the program. Please be aware that students are required to provide their own health insurance coverage during the summer program.

Applications will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

  • Identification within an underrepresented ethnic minority group in the biomedical sciences (e.g., Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander.)
  • US Citizenship or Permanent Residency (valid green card) required due to funding sources. International students are not eligible for this program.
  • Career goals and stated interest in research, including why you would like to participate in the program--move
  • Academic record, particularly in science–related courses
  • Laboratory experience
  • Career goals and stated interest in research, including why you would like to participate in the program. Preference is given to those with an interest in attending Marshall University for their graduate education.

As a condition of acceptance into the program, program participants will be asked after their departure to update information on their educational and career activities. This tracking is done solely to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. It is critical that we be able to conduct this long-term evaluation in order to maintain continuing funding for the programs. The information collected remains strictly confidential.

University of Nebraska Medical Center Summer Undergraduate Research Program

The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) is an academic health science center with a major focus on research. The UNMC Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) is a collaboration between UNMC departments, institutes, colleges, student services, and graduate specialty areas to provide summer opportunities for undergraduate students to become members of research teams and discover first-hand the broad spectrum of research activities occurring at UNMC.

Each summer there are 80-100 positions available for talented undergraduate students mentored by awarded faculty. These full-time research positions are primarily in research laboratories where  students work with team members on an ongoing research project. SURP students attend weekly seminars provided by UNMC researchers to enhance their knowledge about research careers and the variety of research at UNMC. The laboratory experiences obtained by SURP students enhance their competitiveness for later admission to graduate programs at UNMC.

Spend your summer in a state of the art research institution as a team member —using and expanding your scientific knowledge and skills, and learning more about health care and research options. Students will experience a 10-week full-time research placement, receive a stipend and attend enrichment seminars.

The dates for SURP 2020: June 1, 2020 to August 7, 2020.
Application deadline: February 1st 2020
Stipends vary according to program.
