Recruitment Ambassadors

The Recruitment Ambassadors Program within IDEAL Research consists of a collaborative group of Biomedical Graduate Studies (BGS) graduate students and Penn faculty members from across the University committed to the recruitment of the next generation of diverse biomedical research trainees. Recruitment Ambassadors connect with prospective trainees from diverse backgrounds at both local and national recruitment events and provide in depth knowledge on research and training opportunities offered within the broader Penn research community, as well as life in Philadelphia. The ultimate goal of  the program is to welcome well-rounded undergraduate interns and post-baccalaureate scholars into IDEAL Research affiliated SUIP and PennPREP, along with strengthen the pipeline of recruits from historically underrepresented backgrounds into the graduate programs offered within BGS.

Throughout IDEAL Research's recruitment visits, keep an eye out for our Recruitment Ambassadors!
