IMSD-MERGE Graduate Scholar Track

The goal of the IMSD-MERGE Graduate Scholar Program is to increase the number of underrepresented doctoral scholars pursuing careers in the biological and biomedical sciences. IMSD-MERGE Graduate Scholars participate in a series of academic enrichment and professional development activities to ensure that they successfully complete their doctoral programs and are qualified for competitive positions in the academic, scientific, and technology workforce. Scholars also receive funding from the National Institutes of Health during their first and second years of their doctoral program.
