WE CAN HELP!
Find out how to prepare for a graduate education in the biomedical or behavioral sciences with help from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
We give grants to schools to support programs that prepare students from diverse backgrounds to pursue Ph.D.s in biomedical or behavioral fields.
You apply to a school that has one of our programs and if accepted, you could get tuition, a stipend or other funds for your educational expenses.
If you are a U.S. citizen, non citizen national or permanent resident who wants to pursue a career in biomedical or behavioral research, you maybe eligible for support.
Our goal is to develop an outstanding scientific workforce that reflects the diversity of the U.S. population,so we encourage students who are members of groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical,clinical, behavioral and social sciences to apply to our programs. Underrepresented groups currently include African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, natives of the U.S.Pacific Islands, and individuals with disabilities.
