RISE-Scholars Program


 

Program Overview


DSU’s MBRS RISE-Scholar program provides research training and financial support to students majoring in science or mathematics who are interested in pursuing a career in biomedical science.

Academically-promising students selected as RISE-scholars will be awarded $2400 per semester and will be partnered with a faculty member to carry out a research project during the academic year and participate in a paid summer internship. RISE Scholars will become part of a family of research-active faculty, students and graduate students.
 
RISE-Scholars meet weekly with their research mentors and dedicate 10 to 15 hours per week to their research project. RISE-Scholars must also attend a weekly “Introduction to Laboratory Research” class and complete weekly assignments. During the summer,
