NEW Summer Program!

Summer Scholars in Cancer Research (SSCR)

HSC Scholars in Cancer Research is an innovative, integrated training program focused on the students at critical transition points, early undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral career stages that are essential to meet the need of the cancer research workforce in Texas and USA.

Summer Scholars in Cancer Research (SSCR) is one of the program components of the HSC Scholars in Cancer Research Program offered to undergraduate students. This program is designed to provide stage-specific competencies for undergraduates in science knowledge, research skill development, professionalism, and communication. The students will be trained through short-term exposures in the field of cancer and health disparities.

The Summer Scholars will have an 8-week mentor-guided cancer research training experience with enrichment activities (e.g. didactic workshops, scientific seminar, role model seminar, mentoring workshops and ethics training) expected to provide a comprehensive introductory exposure to cancer-related biomedical research.

Application must be submitted by March 21, 2022

Start Date: May 24, 2022

End Date: July 15, 2022

Funding Agency: Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas


The Summer Multicultural Advanced Research Training (SMART)

The Summer Multicultural Advanced Research Training (SMART) Program brings undergraduate students to the UNT Health Science Center campus to participate in a 10-week biomedical sciences project. Participants become familiar with the varied disciplines and methodologies used in biomedical research.

SMART is a program for multicultural students made possible in part by the National Institutes of Health and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. The NIH has designated African Americans, Native Americans, Mexican Americans and Mainland Puerto Ricans as underrepresented populations in the sciences. However, through additional funding provided by our corporate partners, the UNT Health Science Center invites applications from all interested students.

Application Materials: The following materials must be submitted by March 21, 2022

Start Date: May 10, 2022

End Date: July 15, 2022

This program will provide undergraduate students interested in pursuing NIDA-related research, a 10-week summer research experience in a mentor-guided laboratory.  The expectation is an increase in the number of diverse and highly motivates students attaining biomedical degrees in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. This program addresses the significant gap in the number of underrepresented minority groups, disadvantaged populations, and individuals with disabilities that enter biomedical and behavioral science careers.

Application Materials: The following materials must be submitted by March 21, 2022

Start Date: May 10, 2022

End Date: July 15, 2022

 

Required:

Transcripts (official) from the all undergraduate institutions attended

Two letters of recommendation from faculty members
