Qualifies under SAM 1.1.1. and 1.3.2. The primary objective of the RISE Scholars Program at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is to increase the participation of disadvantaged underrepresented minority students (URM) in biomedical research. The UTEP RISE Program is comprised of two distinct populations of trainees: a) Students that participate in research projects as undergraduates and b) Graduate students working towards a Ph.D. degree. The specific aims of this program are as follows: (1) To provide increased access to educational and research biomedical training activities for URM students; (2) Increase the number of URM undergraduates who choose to pursue careers in biomedical research; and (3) Increase the representation of URM graduate students in the Biology and Chemistry Ph.D. programs to a level equivalent to our URM undergraduate population.
