THE DR. NORMAN R. WELDON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT SUMMER RESEARCH INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The FIU Biomedical Engineering Department has established an award for undergraduate students to participate in faculty research during the summer. The awards are intended to support students with an interest in pursuing a career in research with plans to attend graduate studies in biomedical engineering. Two students will be selected to conduct research in a faculty’s laboratory for 20 hr/week for 12 weeks at $10/hour over the summer (May-August). Students must apply with a faculty mentor.
Through the generous support from the Wallace H Coulter Foundation merit-based scholarships are now available for FIU BME undergraduates as well as transfer students. There are several $5,000 scholarships paid out over two years (Scholarships begin Fall semester each year).
FIU Minority Opportunities in Biomedical Research Programs (NIGMS Rise fellowships )
The NIGMS RISE Fellowship Program at FIU is sponsored by a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant. The goal of the RISE program is to increase the number of students from underrepresented groups in biomedical and behavioral research who enter into and successfully complete Ph.D. programs in these fields. http://rise.fiu.edu/
