For a fourth year, The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) – Jupiter, Florida campus will be hosting a Diversity Visitation Event for Research and Graduate Education (DiVERGE) for undergraduates interested in biomedical research careers. We are reaching out to our colleagues and contacts at colleges and universities and asking you to share the event announcement with undergraduates at your institutions.
When: January 4-6, 2018
Application and supporting materials deadline: November 26, 2017
Selected students will be contacted: November 30, 2017
The program is designed to give interested students an in-depth preview of undergraduate research opportunities at TSRI and an understanding of graduate education in the chemical and biological sciences. Travel to the TSRI campus in Jupiter, Florida, as well as all food, lodging and other expenses will be paid by TSRI for the selected students.
DiVERGE is especially geared toward students from underrepresented minority groups or disadvantaged backgrounds, including individuals from low-income families or first-generation science students.
