The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is pleased to announce the 2012 Introduction to Cancer Research Careers (ICRC) Program. The ICRC is designed to encourage individuals from populations underrepresented in science and/or financially disadvantaged backgrounds to seek internship opportunities at the NCI. Successful ICRC applicants will take part in a 2-day campus visit to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where they will have the opportunity to learn about the various scientist-in-training programs, participate in laboratory tours, interview for either a summer or post-baccalaureate (1-year) internship. Participants selected for internships receive a monthly stipend, round-trip travel, and summer housing.
Our goal is to encourage a diverse group of talented students to explore careers in biomedical research. You can help us meet our goal by sharing this information with students and faculty contacts you feel would benefit from this opportunity. Please refer to the attached e-brochure and the ICRC website for additional information
Applications are due Wednesday, November 17th. Supporting materials are due Sunday, November 21st
