Hampton University URISE (HU-URISE) Program
We are recruiting URISE Scholars, Pre-URISE & HU-URISE Affiliates
Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (URISE) program at Hampton University is a scholarship and mentorship program funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) at the NIH.
1) Increasing the number of well-prepared underrepresented (UR) students who matriculate into biomedical science research Ph.D. or combined Ph.D. programs
2) Increasing the numbers of individuals from underrepresented backgrounds in biomedical research careers.
3)The long-term goal of this program at Hampton University is to prepare HU graduates to be leaders in biomedical research by improving their preparedness for Ph.D. programs.
FRESHMAN OR A SOPHOMORE?
The pre-URISE program is designed for students interested in biomedical research careers. The PRE-URISE program will increase and enhance the pool of HU-URISE trainees by developing the student’s critical thinking, problem-solving, quantitative reasoning, and research and communication skills. Students completing all the requirements of the PRE-URISE program will receive a certificate of participation in the pre-URISE program at the end of their sophomore year.
Participation in the Pre-URISE program will increase the student’s chances of getting into the URISE program.
JUNIOR OR SENIOR?
The HU-URISE program is for juniors and seniors. HU-URISE scholars participate in an interdisciplinary curriculum to ensure their competitiveness in Ph.D. programs at research-intensive institutes. The HU-URISE is typically 24 months, starting June 1st of the junior year. URISE scholars receive a scholarship and a monthly stipend. The URISE scholarship also covers in part the students’ participation in academic year and summer research experiences in funded laboratories and their attendance at scientific conferences.
URISE Affiliates participate in the HU-URISE program but do not get an NIH scholarship or stipend. They get access to research, mentorship, and travel funds to present their research at conferences.
