Nevada INBRE offers an exciting opportunity for undergraduates to have a hands-on laboratory experience in an emerging field of biomedical science such as genomics, proteomics, biological imaging, bioinformatics, or any field of research supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
INBRE will award fifteen $4,500 summer scholarships for students to work in a faculty mentor's laboratory on an independent research project. An INBRE summer research experience will enrich your science education, allow you to gain first-hand knowledge about a scientific career, and will give you a competitive edge on graduate school, medical school and job applications. UROP projects often lead to longer term collaborations, publishable research, and careers in medicine or biomedical research.
This program provides student recipients with a scholarship of $4,500. Each mentor receives $1,000 to defray the cost of lab supplies. Because all recipients will be immersed in time-intensive research, participants are not allowed to be engaged in other course work or employment.
Students must meet all of the following eligibility requirements:
Acceptance of this award may impact a student's income level to a degree that could affect eligibility for student loans, and other scholarship/fellowship opportunities. If an applicant has any concerns in this area, it is the student's duty to consult with a campus financial aid advisor. The University does not provide tax advice. If you have questions about possible tax liabilities, you may refer to the IRS web site: http://www.irs.ustreas.gov.
Completed UROP applications must be emailed to email@example.com by 5 pm on March 15, 2013. We expect to notify recipients by April 8.
