IPREP Program

IPREP prepares students for successful graduate careers through an intensive research internship coupled with a rigorous and individualized academic and professional personal development plan.

IPREP-fellows are provided a twelve months of paid research experience working with an active faculty research mentor in an area relevant to the individual’s career interests. This research internship will begin with several brief rotations through the available research programs to ensure the best fit between fellows and mentors.

Trans-disciplinary work is emphasized through frequent interaction of the IPREP fellows, their research mentors and other members of the IPREP support staff. Professional development activities are structured to build the fellows’ strengths in those areas determined to be most important for successful admission to the targeted graduate programs.

Activities may include improving analytical ability, writing skills, oral expression, or basic laboratory skills. IPREP fellows earn a competitive salary of $35,568 and receive health insurance and benefits. Fellows are eligible for travel funds to attend national scientific conferences.
