With great enthusiasm, we want to inform you that the Science and Technology Competency & Education (STCE) opens the application period (December 1, 2022, to March 11, 2023) for the Undergraduate Summer Internship Program (USIP).  We kindly ask your support to promote the program in your institution/organization.  The Program will be hosted by the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus from May 29, 2023, to August 4, 2023.  Attached you will find a copy of the promotional material, and more information can be found at 

The STCE of the Puerto Rico IDeA Network Biomedical Research Excellence (PR-INBRE) (Award # P20GM103475) aims to increase the pool of undergraduate students to pursue a graduate degree and/or a career in Biomedical Research.  STCE will recruit the second cohort of trainees for a total of 20 undergraduate students in a 10-week hands-on part-time (35-hour weekly) research experience in Puerto Rico under the supervision of an assigned research mentor, based on the trainee’s interest.
