Undergraduate Scholars Program

The Department of Biological Sciences, with funding from the HHMI Undergraduate Science Education grant, has established an Undergraduate Scholars Program to support underrepresented and/or economically disadvantaged biology majors. Six HHMI funded students will work twenty hours per week in a faculty mentor's laboratory. Each Hunter/HHMI Undergraduate Scholar will receive a monthly stipend, and travel, room and board, and registration at a scientific conference. Hunter/HHMI Undergraduate Scholars must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and be entering their junior year.
