I am thrilled to share information about the UConn RaMP (Research and Mentoring for Postbaccalaureates) Program; a year-long, paid NSF- funded postbaccalaureate research training program based at the University of Connecticut. The purpose of the program is to offer a mentored research experience and professional development opportunities to individuals historically underrepresented in STEM (including underrepresented ethic groups, people with disabilities, veterans, and first-generation collegestudents) or those who did not have sufficient access to research during their undergraduate careers (college graduates of lower-resourced institutions). RaMP provides an intensive research experience, with salaries comparable to an entry level job.Scholars will conduct original research under the mentorship a faculty members and graduate student mentor, participate in professional development activities, and expand high demand technical skills in preparation for a diverse array of STEM careers and/or graduate school.Our website and application information can be found here: Applicants are encouraged to visit the website to learn more about the program and review potential research projects/mentors. The application deadline for the 2024 cohort is March 1st.Feel free to reach out to me at if you have any questions.
