Submit the QuestBridge application by March 26.

 

QuestBridge’s College Prep Scholarship provides opportunities designed to help outstanding low-income high school juniors prepare to apply to top colleges.

The QuestBridge College Prep Scholarship is designed for high school juniors who have shown outstanding academic ability despite facing economic challenges. Most College Prep Scholars come from households earning less than $60,000 annually and have experienced long-term economic hardship.

Eligibility:

  • Students must be juniors who are planning to apply to college during the fall of their senior year.
  • Citizenship requirements: U.S. citizens, Permanent Residents, and international students attending high school in the United States are eligible to apply for the College Prep Scholarship.

Full Scholarship to Study Medicine in Cuba- Deadline 3/14/14

February 27, 2014 by

Deadline: March 14, 2014

[This activity is approved by the U.S. Department of State.]

The Latin American School of Medicine (LASM), in Havana, Cuba, was founded in 1998, as Cuba’s response to the devastation of Hurricanes Mitch and Georges.  Cuba understood that, if the poorest regions in our hemisphere were able to develop adequate healthcare infrastructures, they could save as many lives every year as had been lost in the hurricanes.  The Cubans offered full scholarships to enroll at LASM to young people from the nations affected by the hurricanes — on the sole condition that, once they graduated, they would return to their home countries and offer low-cost health services in their own underserved communities.

This exceptionally generous offer of a world-class full-scholarship medical education is also being extended to students from the US.

The offer to US students was made because of Cuba’s recognition that millions in the US have little or no access to affordable health care; and that many young people in the US don’t even dare to dream of studying medicine because of the economic costs.  Students from communities of color and low-income communities are especially encouraged to apply to the program.

Applicant criteria:

  • Be US citizens (with US passport)
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 25 by the time of MATRICULATION
  • Must have completed the following college-level, pre-med science courses:
    • One year of biology with lab (Biology I and II with labs)
    • One year of chemistry with lab (General Chemistry I and II with labs)
    • One year of organic chemistry with lab (Organic Chemistry I and II with labs)
    • One year of physics with lab (Physics I and II with labs)
  • Be physically and mentally fit
  • Come from the humblest and neediest communities in the US
  • Be committed to practice medicine in poor and underserved US communities after graduation

cdu_logo

The Center to Eliminate Cancer Health Disparities at the Charles Drew University (CDU) and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA (UCLA) are hosting a great summer internship opportunity for undergraduate students.

 The Undergraduate Cancer Research Training Program (UCRTP) is a summer internship to train undergraduates in technical and critical thinking skills in a laboratory, clinical, or community setting. The goal of the UCRTP is to ensure that each undergraduate student acquires the knowledge, skills, and attitude to become a proficient researcher in cancer research. Research topics include but are not limited to molecular, cell, developmental biology and genetics of cancer; the influence of lifestyle choices, diet, and exercise on cancer risk; and translating basic research into cancer therapeutic agents. Each student intern acquires training by working on a hypothesis-driven scientific research project, at CDU or UCLA, alongside a designated mentor during the course of 8-12 weeks. A stipend is provided to students in the program. The internship is competitive, and applications are due on March 1, 2014.

This is a great opportunity for students to gain research experience so please feel free to forward this information among your students, faculty, and interested programs. The UCRTP brochure is attached to this email which can be posted or distributed to others who might be interested in hearing more about our program. We can mail you printed materials if you are interested in keeping them on file or display. We are also happy to come and present the program information during internship or job fairs coming up. Please see the link below for more information about the program and how students may submit an application:
