Applicants are required to submit:
Admission will be for one year, with the admission to the second (and final) year dependent on success in the first one. During the second year, scholars must commit to applying to PhD programs in the biomedical sciences.
Applications will be accepted between November 1, 2015 and March 1, 2016. We will start reviewing applications on or after March 1 and will continue notifications of admission until all slots are filled. The program will begin with orientation activities in the beginning of June.
Only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may apply. Applicants must have a degree in a biomedically-relevant science from an accredited U.S. college or university and have graduated no more than 36 months prior to the start of the program. Applicants must intend to apply to a graduate program within two years of beginning the PREP program. Individuals who bring diversity to graduate study in the biological or biomedical sciences by reason of their culture, class, race, ethnicity, background, disability, work and life experiences, skills and interests are encouraged to apply for the program. Applications are especially encouraged from students who are Black/African-Americans, Hispanic/Latino/Chicano Americans, Native Americans and Alaskan Natives, and Pacific-Islanders.
