WSU GRAD-PREP Scholars is a National Institutes of Health-funded program that provides research and academic training in the biomedical/behavioral sciences for postbaccalaureate students from underrepresented groups and those with disabilities who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree. This one-year program provides a hands-on research experience in state-of-the-art biomedical research, academic enrichment courses and faculty mentoring activities.
The WSU GRAD-PREP program has a successful track-record of preparing our scholars to meet the challenges of a Ph.D. program leading to a career in the biomedical sciences. Seventy-five percent of our scholars have been admitted to graduate schools after completing our one-year program. Our GRAD-PREP experience demonstrates the excitement and rewards of clinically relevant research.
WSU GRAD-PREP scholars will earn an annual salary of $21,840 with full benefits, including health insurance. Tuition remission is available for academic development courses and workshops. Travel expenses to a local, regional or national scientific meeting are also available. WSU GRAD-PREP scholars will receive guidance through the Ph.D. program selection and application process and will enhance their skills on the Graduate Record Exam through preparation workshops and mock interviews.
