The application period for the 2013-14 PREP program is now open. While acceptances are typically sent out in early May, there may be a delay due to NIH funding concerns.
The University of Massachusetts Amherst PREP is a one-year paid internship program designed to provide recent college graduates the opportunity to strengthen research skills and academic competitiveness in pursuit of a doctoral degree. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents. Successful applicants will have completed their undergraduate degree within the last 36 months, and are planning to pursue a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences. UMass PREP is supported by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
The deadline for admission into the 2013 PREP program is April 1, 2013.
