Congratulations to Jocelyne Chavez and Prisilia Ramirez for being accepted to participate in the HHMI EXROP (Exceptional Research Opportunities) Program in Summer 2018

The goal of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s (HHMI) Exceptional Research Opportunities Program (EXROP) is to ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is prepared to assume leadership roles in science, including college and university faculty who have the responsibility to develop the next generation of scientists. The EXROP Program links the resources of HHMI’s Science and Science Education departments to provide bright, motivated undergraduate students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences with outstanding summer research experiences. HHMI continues to work with EXROP students after their summer study programs to encourage them to pursue careers in academic science.
• 10 weeks of full-time research in the lab of an HHMI scientist
• $5,000 stipend
• Participation in a local summer research program with other undergraduate researchers

• Students will attend two annual EXROP meetings on May 16-18, 2018 and in May 2019 at HHMI headquarters in Chevy Chase, Maryland, where they will meet former and current EXROP students
• HHMI scientists, nominators, and staff will continue to follow up and mentor the students beyond the summer experience
• EXROP students may be eligible for a second summer research opporunity in their EXROP lab (EXROP Capstone)
• EXROP alumni who pursue the PhD degree will be eligible for continued HHMI support in their PhD training through the Gilliam Fellows program- HHMI
