September 30, 2023
- Scholarship Description
The goal of the Diversification of Our Research Scientists (D.O.O.R.S) Scholarship, presented by the BioPharmaceutical technology Institute in partnership with Promega, is to recognize and empower underrepresented students in STEM by offering a $5,000 award that can be used towards resources to support tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance at an educational institution. This includes fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses at an educational institution.
Applications are open to undergraduate students from underrepresented backgrounds pursuing a biotechnology-related major with the hopes of continuing in that career. Winners will agree to partner with Promega to share information on their research and collaborate on projects such as scientific posters, white papers, webinars, blog posts or other opportunities. The application requires a personal statement and a short summary of the student’s current or previous contribution to a biomedical research project. We also ask that applicants provide a recommendation from a professor, instructor, or lab administrator at their college or university that can speak to their eligibility for the program.
