Description: 

The Summer Institutes are open to junior/senior undergraduates and, in most cases, first-year graduate students from the host university or other institution. They consist of summer programs across one or, in some cases, two summers. They combine for-credit coursework and research seminars with hands-on research mentored by leading faculty in the field. Students are paid a stipend. NIBIB and NSF are interested in having the Summer Institutes reach broadly into the national student talent pool as they seek to attract a diverse group of U.S. citizens and permanent residents to careers in bioengineering or bioinformatics, with special emphasis on ensuring the participation of women, under-represented minorities, and persons with disabilities in the program.
