Research Opportunity: University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have a Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) (Application Deadline: 02/01/16)

The University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have a Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) supported by the NIH.  The program offers several  research fellowships each year. The goal of the program is to bring underrepresented and disadvantaged students to UW for one year, following their graduation with a baccalaureate degree. The programs seeks to facilitate their subsequent enrollment into graduate school in the biomedical sciences. The target population are students with a strong interest in pursuing a graduate degree in the biological sciences.  Particularly suitable candidates would be students that may not have the necessary laboratory experience; that may have decided late in their undergraduate career to pursue a career in the sciences; or, that may need additional upper-level course work to provide confidence of successful matriculation in graduate school. This program provides a great opportunity for under-represented, underprivileged and disabled students to work in a research laboratory at the University of Washington and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, under the direct mentorship of world-class scientists. In addition, the students will receive supplemental training in scientific writing, literature evaluation, and interaction with the academic scientific community.

The Uni­ver­sity of Washington’s Post-Baccalaureate Research Edu­ca­tion Pro­gram (PREP) is now accept­ing appli­ca­tions for the 2016–2017 PREP year and will con­tinue to do so through the begin­ning of Feb­ru­ary. To learn more about UW PREP, please visit the PREP website:
