Dear Prospective BiomedRAP Student:
Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2014 Biomedical Research Apprenticeship Program (BioMedRAP). The BioMedRAP Application deadline is February 3, 2014. The 2014 program will convene May 27, 2014 and continue through August 2, 2014.
Washington University is recognized as a preeminent research and educational institution. The University provides education, leadership and an environment that future scientists and clinicians need as they prepare to solve emerging biological problems. Come and discover the tradition in a supportive environment as a BiomedRAP research participant.
The BioMedRAP is designed to recruit exceptional students interested in careers in biological and biomedical sciences with an intensive 10-week laboratory experience at one of the top research institutions in the nation. Participants will engage in an independent research project under the mentorship of faculty at Washington University in St. Louis. Students who have had prior research experience and are currently enrolled in a U.S. undergraduate program are encouraged to apply to BioMedRAP.
The stipend for the 2014 program is $4000 and is quite ample to sustain you while in St. Louis. We provide housing, travel and many meals throughout the summer. Program activities include seminars, individualized career counseling, workshops on applying to Ph.D. and M.D. /Ph.D. programs, social activities and much more. The program will conclude with a symposium featuring research presentations by participants.
The information available from the website will guide you through the application process. We recommend that you complete all of the components of your application as early as possible to ensure all materials are received prior to the deadline.
