Our program offers a unique educational experience: With its combination of a month-long winter field season in NW Ethiopia followed by a month-long summer research project in either a US laboratory or collection-based research at the National Museum in Ethiopia, students are trained in the entire pipeline from data recovery through analysis to publication. Research topics include archaeology, paleontology, geology, geochronology, geochemistry, and taphonomy, with a strong focus on actualistic studies. Past UG participants have successfully presented their research at scientific meetings, and in some cases their research project formed the basis for their undergraduate thesis.
MSA REU in Ethiopia is open to all two or four year college students who are incoming freshmen through juniors, and US nationals or permanent residents. Past participants majored in a wide range of fields (e.g., anthropology, biology, chemistry, chemical engineering, geology, history, and linguistics) and so all interested students regardless of field of study are encouraged to apply. We especially encourage applications from women and students from groups underrepresented in the sciences.
The program pays all expenses including participation at a national scientific meeting, and also provides a substantial stipend.
Application Deadline is June 1, 2019.
The US-Canada Regional Committee of IBRO (International Brain Research Organization) is pleased to announce the launch of our 2019 program that will cover the cost for doctoral graduate students and postdoctoral fellows training in neurosciences in US-based minority-serving institutions (MSIs) to attend advanced neuroscience courses. Preference will be given to diverse individuals, as defined by the National Institutes of Health (e.g., African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, and persons with disabilities). Fellowships will be awarded to support trainees to take neuroscience or related courses at the Marine Biological Laboratories (MB) at Woods Hole, MA, and at Cold Spring Harbor Labs (CSHL; see links below) in 2019. Both laboratories offer a variety of excellent courses, and in addition are outstanding venues for trainees to network with leaders in the field. They also provide collaboration and mentoring opportunities that will be invaluable for future career development.

Deadlines for applications range from February-June, 2019.
This program is for recent graduates (within the past 36 months) who intend to continue their education in the biomedical sciences by entering a PhD program. PREP’s main benefit to the scholars is engagement in cutting edge research for one full year with a faculty mentor of their choice while receiving assistance in preparing their PhD applications. We offer many additional benefits including an annual salary of $27,200, health/dental benefits, GRE preparation classes, tuition for academic courses, travel support to attend conferences, and many additional activities geared to aid in the overall professional development of our scholars.
Recent college graduates who are planning to apply to graduate or professional school will spend a year engaged in biomedical investigation at one of NIAID’s research laboratories. The fellowship can be extended for an additional year provided the performance of the trainee is satisfactory and continued support by the laboratory is available.
No application deadline.
Our internships offer the opportunity to gain important skills in conservation work. You’ll learn firsthand how a biodiversity advocacy organization works to mobilize public support, influence public policy and undertake ecological restoration. We have a small staff, so you’ll be an important part of the SWEC team.
Some of our internships pay a small stipend, others are unpaid depending upon our current staff resources. Either way, you’ll receive great work experience and possibly academic credit. We require a 3-6 month commitment, working at least 12 hours per week on a flexible schedule.
We are looking for interns who have excellent written and verbal communication skills, relevant coursework and/or experience, good interpersonal skills for public outreach, the ability to work independently, and a strong commitment to SWEC’s mission of biodiversity protection.
NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. AN REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
