Description:
The NIH/NIGMS-funded RISE (Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement) program is designed to assist underrepresented students to attain their doctoral degrees in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.

The UTSA RISE Undergraduate program supports research training for students who are interested in developing professional careers as research scientists. This federally funded training program is designed to ensure that talented and motivated minority or disadvantaged students are able to obtain the background and skills that they need to enter and succeed in doctoral education.

All RISE participants perform original scientific research and present their findings at scientific meetings. They take courses and participate in activities to enhance their professional and leadership development. They are introduced to a broad range of scientific disciplines and are provided with networking opportunities with representatives of some of the nation's top research universities. It is the goal of our program that all of our students continue their education to higher levels, obtain their doctoral degree, and pursue satisfying research careers.

Applications are collected continuously and will be reviewed approximately 6 weeks prior to the spring, summer and fall semesters. In addition, applications on hand will be considered when openings become available.
