The Stowers Institute for Medical Research (Kansas City, Missouri) is now accepting applications for Stowers Research Scholars, a fully paid, mentored 1-year post-baccalaureate research fellowship. Through guided research experience and academic career mentoring, this program aims to increase the number of NIH-defined underrepresented students in fundamental biological research. This year we are accepting up to three students for the program beginning in June. 
This opportunity is open to US citizens or permanent residents from diverse backgrounds with a BA or BS in a STEM field who are interested in pursuing graduate education in basic biological sciences. Selection preference will be given to members of communities traditionally underrepresented in STEM as defined by the NIH. Compensation is highly competitive and prior laboratory experience is not required. Please feel free to directly forward this message to any and all who may be interested in applying for this unique opportunity for biological research experience and career mentoring.
