RF CUNY Brown Bag Research Webinars: NIH Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (U-RISE)
April 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Targeted Audience: Biomedical faculty in CUNY colleges
Presenters: John Tsapogas-Director RF-Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support & Louise Hainline, Special Associate to the Provost for Grants and Contracts and Professor of Psychology, Brooklyn College
Overview of Webinar: The goal of the Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (U-RISE) program is to develop a diverse pool of undergraduates who complete their baccalaureate degree, and transition into and complete biomedical, research-focused higher degree programs (e.g., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.). Training grants offset the cost of stipends, tuition and fees, and training related expenses, including health insurance, for the appointed trainees in accordance with the approved NIH support levels. Training grants are usually awarded for five years and are renewable.
