The National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and Michigan State University (MSU) are sponsoring the Biomedical Research for University Students in Health Sciences (BRUSH) Summer Research Program at MSU for undergraduate and veterinary students interested in the biomedical sciences and research-related careers.

The goal of the BRUSH Program is to provide hands-on research exposure and graduate or professional school preparation opportunities for individuals who are from populations underrepresented in biomedical research. Program dates are May 20 to August 2, 2024. Undergraduate students earn a stipend of approximately $5,700 (reported as taxable income) and are provided room and board at MSU Residential Facilities, for a total compensation package of approximately $9,600.
