MINORITY APPRENTICESHIPS FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS

Project: Research project

Description

This proposal requests funds to provide research apprenticeships during
the summer to underrepresented minorities from Northwest area high
schools. A parallel program will provide a research experience or
internship for teachers who are either members of underrepresented
minority groups or who teach or will potentially teach in schools having
significant populations of underrepresented minorities. Both students and
teachers will be matched with a mentor having ongoing research projects.
The students will be true participants in the research projects and it
is expected that they will report to their peers on their work and their
mentor's research. During the summer both students and teachers will be
exposed to scientific seminars, both in their mentor's field and in other
research fields, the attempt being made to provide the broadest exposure
to biomedical research. Three pre-existing programs will be combined in this single program. The
school of Medicine and the school of Dentistry at Oregon Health Sciences
University and the affiliated Oregon Regional Primate Research Center
(ORPRC) have a long history of administering summer programs. We believe
that by combining the programs we will be able to provide better exposure
to the broader fields of biomedical research.
