National Institutes of Health Scholarship

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Undergraduate Scholarship Program (UGSP) offers competitive scholarships to students from disadvantaged backgrounds who are committed to careers in biomedical, behavioral, and social science health-related research. The program offers:

·  Scholarship support
·  Paid research training at the NIH during the summer
·  Paid employment and training at the NIH after graduation

SCHOLARSHIP REQUIREMENTS
The NIH Undergraduate Scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis based on the following basic requirements:

·  U.S. citizen, national, or qualified noncitizen
·  Enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a full-time student for the 2012-2013 academic year at an accredited, 4-year undergraduate institution.
·  High school seniors are not eligible to apply.
·  3.5 GPA or higher (on a 4.0 scale) or within the top 5 percent of your class.
