The BioMedRAP selects participants based on academic achievement, leadership, and commitment to diversity. We seek applicants who have challenged themselves and excelled academically; demonstrate experience overcoming substantial educational, cultural or economic obstacles; are first-generation college students, or can demonstrate a strong interest in bringing diverse people together.  

We encourage applications from individuals who come from rural or inner-city areas and individuals from groups traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research — specifically African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, women and those with disabilities. Applications also are encouraged from international students currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in the United States. 

Individuals who have earned a baccalaureate degree and students who are not currently enrolled at a U.S. institution are not eligible to apply. Priority consideration will be given to applicants with at least one year of research experience.​
