University of Wisconsin-Madison will host a Biosciences Opportunities Preview (BOPS) Weekend on October 8-11, 2015
RISE-sponsored Vaccine Symposium, July 8, 2015
University of Minnesota
The Biomedical Science Graduate Programs are pleased to announce their Campus Preview Weekend taking place on the Twin Cities campus September 24-26, 2015. Students whose applications are accepted will visit our campus, meet with directors of graduate study, faculty and graduate students. They will gain valuable experience in interviewing and will acquire a first hand appreciation for our campus, our program environment and our quality of life in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
All expenses for the visit will be paid.
The Preview Weekend is open to all U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are planning to apply to enter a biomedical sciences Ph.D. program in the Fall of 2016. We especially encourage students who are NIGMS program trainees and/or from under-represented groups to apply.
The application deadline is July 13, 2015.
Students who attend the Preview and decide to apply to one of our 6 biomedical Ph.D. programs will have their graduate school application fee paid for the program(s) they apply to.

Undergraduate Research in Evolution and Systematics at AMNH (American Museum of National History)
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, offers paid summer internships for qualified undergraduate students to conduct research projects with AMNH scientists in evolutionary biology and systematics, linked to specific individual research projects. Included in the program are a general orientation to the Museum and a series of weekly meetings at which students discuss their research, present informal progress reports, and participate in discussions and seminars as well as graduate and research career opportunities. At the conclusion of the internships, students deliver oral presentations of their work and prepare publication quality research papers. Successful applicants will receive a stipend and dormitory housing on a nearby university campus, or an equivalent housing stipend, will be provided together with a subsistence allowance. Based on need, travel costs to and from New York City are also covered.
Boren Scholarships and Fellowships provide funding for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East). The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.
Maximum awards are $20,000 for the Boren Scholarships (for undergraduates) and $30,000 for the Boren Fellowships (for graduate students). In exchange for funding, recipients commit to working in the federal government for a minimum of one year. Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages, fields of study and application procedures can be found at www.borenaward.org
