A free resource that provides access to information and support for individuals and families living with developmental disabilities.
Kennedy Krieger Institute is now accepting applications for two programs developed as part of its Research Initiatives for Student Enhancement (RISE) Program. These programs are funded by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and are designed to provide educational opportunities for students. Students who are members of underrepresented populations (as defined by the federal government, http://www.cdc.gov/minorityhealth/ExecutiveOrders.html) are strongly encouraged to apply!
The MCHC/RISE-UP Program is a 10-week summer program designed for undergraduates in their junior and senior year, and recent baccalaureate degree students who are interested in learning more about preventing health disparities. Through this program, university partners from across the nation will offer learning opportunities for these students, both at a local and national level.
The Dr. James A. Ferguson Emerging Infectious Diseases Fellowship is a 9-week summer program for students currently enrolled full-time in a medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, or public health graduate program who are interested in learning more about the area of infectious diseases and health disparities. Fellows may also gain clinical experience and develop leadership skills.
