The NIEHS Scholars Connect Program provides an opportunity for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) focused undergraduate students from the surrounding Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) and other Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) to solidly connect with NIEHS and engage in many of its educational, informational, training, and career-oriented outlets.
NSCP Scholars will further their scientific training through hands-on laboratory experience and professional development activities. Each NSCP Scholar is paired with a NIEHS scientist that serves as their research mentors. These research mentors guide Scholars in 40 hours of research-related activities each week during the summer Connection and 20 hours of research-related activity during the fall and spring Connections. The Scholars also attend a weekly NSCP Seminar to further their scientific and professional development.
