Bridge to PhD in Neurosciences Program (BPNP) reflects a series of interrelated fields designed to develop students interest and success as graduate schlolars in Ph.D. programs. Our future scholars would have the oportunity to perform research at a lab with biomedical and/or behavioral areas, with interest in learning underlying neural mechanisms of these.
The BPNP program series consists of three components, which can be completed as an entire series. However, a scholar can also participate only in an individual program (individual part??**!!). The overall components of the program are:
This is the second component, which is also known as ENDURE.
It is for students who: (a) have determined that their plan is to study for a Ph.D. degree in Behavioral or Neurosciences; (b) are from underrepresented classes in STEM, and (c) are, at least, rising Juniors.
These scholars typically complete both a summer research component, and a semester in residence at MSU during the Fall.
This component is limited to students who: (a) have completed their bachelors degree, and (b) that are committed to studying for the Ph.D. in biomedical.behavioral sciences, but not necessarily neuroscience.
This opportunity is limited to students of underrepresented populations in STEM.
These scholars will complete a one-year postbacc program.
