2020 Fred Hutch Summer Undergraduate Research Program

Application deadline, January 10, 2020

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) hosts a 9-week summer internship that is designed to provide biomedical research experience and mentorship for undergraduate students of rising senior status. We would appreciate your help promoting the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) among faculty/students in the MARC program at the University of the Virgin Islands.

We are aware that MARC programs are funded by the National Institutes of Health and MARC fellows are not allowed to accept compensation or travel support from another federal funding source. The SURP has a history of hosting MARC fellows representing New Mexico State University (NMSU), the University of New Mexico (UNM), the University of Arizona, California State University, Bakersfield, Washington University in St. Louis, and the University of Puerto Rico (UPR), Mayaguez and we are eager to collaborate with the MARC program at the University of the Virgin Islands to support the scientific training of your fellows. MARC fellows who are selected to participate in the SURP will receive salary and travel support from the MARC program in accordance with NIH policy. The SURP application asks students to identify whether they are MARC fellows, so this designation is immediately identifiable to program staff.

Please see informational brochure that offers an overview of the program, including eligibility criteria, compensation, travel and housing, and how to apply. Please encourage your students to visit the SURP website for more comprehensive information.

About the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP)

The SURP is an intensive, 9-week internship designed to provide research experience and mentorship for rising-senior undergraduate students who are interested in biomedical research. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, students will:

  • Complete an independent research project;
  • Attend weekly research seminars;
  • Participate in professional development workshops designed to facilitate the preparation of competitive applications for graduate/medical school; and
  • Present their findings at a competitive poster session.

The program will run from Monday, June 15 – Friday, August 14, 2020.

An online application for the 2020 SURP will be available via the SURP website in mid-November 2019.

The application deadline is midnight Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, January 10, 2020.

Letters of recommendation for up to two references are due by midnight Pacific Standard Time (PST) on Friday, January 17, 2020.

Hallmarks of the SURP at Fred Hutch include:

Breadth and quality of research experiences: Students are paired with a faculty and staff mentor in one of the following five scientific divisions: Basic Sciences, Clinical Research, Human Biology, Public Health Sciences, or Vaccine and Infectious Disease.

Institutional involvement and support: In addition to matching students with a faculty and staff mentor, Fred Hutch staff (post-docs, staff scientists, and graduate students) from all five divisions volunteer to serve as peer-reviewers of students’ personal statements and resumes, as table captains at a speed-mentoring session designed to share perspective and advice regarding the graduate or medical school application process, as well as judges at the culminating competitive poster session, and as mock interviewers for graduate, medical or professional school.

Tailored to individual needs/aspirations: The SURP curriculum is broad in order to accommodate trainees’ diverse interests; however this is not a one-size-fits-all program. We endeavor to meet the individual needs and aspirations of our trainees by asking participants to consider how or in what ways program staff can maximize their time while at the FHCRC, whether that be meeting with faculty within or outside their field of interest, meeting with program directors/administrators at the University of Washington, touring the transplant clinic or cellular therapy lab, etc.

Sustained support/mentorship: The SURP is more than a 9-week internship; program staff maintains correspondence with trainees long after the program has concluded in support of their individual academic and career goals. The program administers an Annual Training Program Follow-up Survey, maintains a Facebook page, and has established a tight-knit alumni community to foster routine communication and peer-to-peer mentorship.

Postbaccalaureate Research Program (PREP) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School


I would like to bring to your attention an exciting research training opportunity at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS). The Postbaccalaureate Research Program (PREP) is a NIH-funded post-baccalaureate training program that prepares students with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the Physical or Life Sciences (if interested in Basic Biomedical Science study) or a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Public Health or related social science degree (if interested in Clinical and Population Health Research) for doctoral study in the biomedical sciences.

During the 12-month PREP training period, program participants take a curriculum of graduate courses relevant to their area of focus (basic science or clinical and population sciences) and a simultaneous year-long, mentored, research experience. This allows trainees to focus on developing their research skills and acquiring the foundational academic knowledge that is necessary to undertake leading-edge biomedical research. Program participants also receive advising from an assigned faculty advisor and peer mentor.

PREP participants are required to develop an Individual Development Plan that identifies areas for development during the program, strategies for maximizing development, and the identification of PhD training programs that are “best fits” for the trainee. Trainees also participate in a bi-monthly series of professional and career development activities with PhD students participating in the UMMS Initiative to Maximize Student Development. These sessions focus on several critical topics, including: research presentations, time management, effective oral communication skills, and networking skills. These sessions also help to build a sense of community.

PREP trainees also receive:

1. Financial support to attend and present at national scientific and career development meetings

2. Networking events with UMMS leaders, as well as other local and regional leaders in academia and industry

3. Close interaction with the UMMS Center for Biomedical Career Development

The result is a graduate who is competitive for admission into top-tier graduate programs. Of note, program participants are presented to the relevant UMMS PhD admissions committees in the spring for consideration for admission into the PhD program in the fall.

All PREP participants receive a salary, health and dental benefits, and coverage of tuition and fees. To be eligible, applicants must be US citizens or Permanent Residents and have completed their undergraduate studies no more than 36 months prior to matriculation into the PREP. The application deadline is February 28. There is no application fee.

More information regarding the PREP can be found at the PREP website.

Fall 2019 Research Programs

Fall Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS)

FULLY FUNDED MARINE, OCEANOGRAPHIC AND ATMOSPHERIC UNDERGRADUATE INTERNSHIPS

The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program http://www.bios.edu/education/reu to support internships for undergraduate student research at BIOS during fall 2019 (students will arrive August 25 and depart November 16).

An REU internship at BIOS is an ideal way to gain the experience necessary to embark on graduate studies or careers in oceanography and the marine and atmospheric sciences. REU interns will carry out an independent research project under the expert supervision of BIOS scientists and undertake training in scientific communication, research methods and ethics, and career development. You will give presentations about your research to your peers and colleagues at BIOS. Our program offers the opportunity to take part in various field excursions to learn about Bermuda's natural history, and all students will have the opportunity to participate in an oceanographic research cruise aboard our research vessel R/V Atlantic Explorer.

This program provides recipients with the opportunity to design and conduct intensive, hands-on research projects - under faculty supervision and mentorship, within several research areas including:

* Biology, chemistry, and physics of the open ocean

* Biology, physiology, and biochemistry of reef building corals and reef ecosystems

* Molecular biology of marine organisms

* Environmental chemistry of Bermuda's atmosphere and inshore waters

* Effects and consequences of global environmental change

Students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate study and have not graduated at the time of the program are eligible. Underrepresented groups and students attending colleges or universities with limited STEM research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applicants are ineligible if they have participated in a prior NSF-funded REU in Ocean Sciences. Successful candidates are advised to arrange for independent study credit through their home institutions.

Funding includes return air travel to Bermuda, campus accommodation and meals. Each successful REU applicant will also receive a competitive stipend. Medical/travel insurance is the responsibility of the student.

Please visit http://www.bios.edu/education/reu for additional information on the BIOS REU program and the online application form.

Completed applications and supporting documents must be submitted by May 31.

Questions? Contact us at education@bios.edu<mailto:education@bios.edu>

The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences is an independent U.S. not-for-profit marine research and educational organization with 501(c)(3) status and a Bermuda Registered Charity (#116).

The attached flyer is similar to what I shared with you previously, but it is now revised to indicate a paid internship. It is also revised to alert interested candidates that they must apply through USAJOBS.gov. The USAJOBS.gov announcement number will be RTP-OAR-OT-2019-0029, and the application window will open on this coming Tuesday, March 26.


Please be advised that the application window will be no longer than 5 business days, and EPA often closes that window early once the maximum number of allowed applications is reached. It is therefore important for interested candidates to move as quickly as possible to apply once the announcement is posted on USAJOBS.gov.

Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program

Application Deadline: February 8, 2019


As our application deadline of February 8th rapidly approaches, we are reaching out to you in a final effort to encourage students to apply to the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (conservationscholars.ucsc.edu) at the University of California Santa Cruz. Each March we select 20 early-undergraduate Scholars from around the country to participate in a two-year conservation mentorship program centered on the summers between academic years. Our goal is to serve students from groups traditionally underrepresented in conservation, across disciplines, who can contribute to diversifying, redefining, and strengthening efforts to protect land, wildlife and water. We focus our efforts on serving college freshmen, sophomores, and juniors with two years of college left at a stage when we can support their undergraduate careers and their choices as they graduate. Students who attend or are transferring to any four-year institution in the US, its territories and Native nations are eligible. Although we do support DACA students, international students are not eligible.

During the first year Scholars participate in an eight-week, intensive summer course integrating conservation design, leadership and research experiences while traveling with a close group of peers and mentors. During the second summer, Scholars pursue eight-week research and practice internships with nationally recognized conservation organizations and agencies. A professional development retreat after the second summer brings together the Scholar cohort and prepares them to apply for jobs and graduate school. Throughout the two years and beyond, we work with home mentors at each Scholar’s campus to provide ongoing support. Our Scholars receive a $4,000 stipend each summer and become part of the national Doris Duke Conservation Scholars network for life.

I hope you will share our program information with faculty, eligible students, and others in your professional and community networks. Applications for the 2019 class of Scholars are available on the website and due February 8, 2019.
