A National Science Foundation-funded study is being conducted on mentoring of undergraduate life science researchers, with the aim of determining how undergraduate researchers are affected by being mentored by a graduate student, postdoctoral researcher, and/or faculty member. All undergraduates who have conducted life science research for one semester or summer in the past two years are eligible to participate.
Ver abajo una oportunidad para realizar investigación de verano en MIT. Yo participé de este programa mientras estaba en la UPR y fue una de mis mejores experiencias académicas, profesionales y sociales! Como yo, decenas de estudiantes puertorriqueños se han beneficiado de este y otros programas de investigación de verano. Solicita y verás que no te arrepentirás.
When talking to scientists in industry and academia, I always ask: “How is it that you got involved in Research? What inspired you to follow a path as a Scientist? When did you decide that you would continue a PhD?” While an interest in Science and Math typically starts early on in school and prior to college, the passion that propels many of these individuals to pursue a PhD stems from transformational research opportunities. Many times, the answers to all my questions converge into: “it was that summer research opportunity that inspired me to dream higher”. My life as an engineer and scientist and my motivation were not different.
During November 7-10 the twelfth Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) took place in San Jose, California. ABRCMS is the largest professional conference for minority students in science, engineering and mathematics.
As in previous years, a large number of Puerto Rican students attended the conference. Ciencia Puerto Rico was not able to attend this year but we received news that a large number of students from Puerto Rican received awards.
Through this blog post we wish to acknowledge and extend our congratulations to the awardees. Thanks for representing Puerto Rico so well!
The National Alliance for Hispanic Health (the Alliance) has established the Alliance/Merck Ciencia (Science) Hispanic Scholars Program, a partnership to improve Hispanic student access to higher education and degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM. This program is being supported by The Merck Company Foundation and the Merck Institute for Science Education (MISE.
The American Physical Society Minority Scholarship helps increase the number of under-represented minorities obtaining degrees in physics. The scholarship provides funding and mentoring to minority physics students, helping them enhance their education and for successfully prepare for a variety of careers.
