The SDSU MBRS – Pre-IMSD – Biomedical Exploratory Program (BEP) application is now posted at the following link:
If you applied last year, the application was changed, therefore, any student interested in being a BEP scholar, must complete the new application.
Freshmen and sophomore students in the College of Sciences, College of Engineering, or College of Health and Human Services (Health Science, Pre-Public Health, or Speech Language Hearing Sciences) are encouraged to apply.
This is a wonderful opportunity to engage in research this summer and possibly during the academic year.
We highly recommend all interested students apply early (and before the deadline), as we expect a high number of applicants.
Application instructions, the application, and personal statement form can be downloaded at the link above.
WHAT IS THE BEP?
The Biomedical Exploratory Program will introduce undergraduates to research, laboratory techniques, pre-graduate school planning and resources, and mentor students year-round to increase their competitiveness for graduate school in the biomedical/behavioral sciences.
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
Freshman and Sophomore students majoring in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental science, health science, mathematics, physics, psychology, public health, speech language hearing science, statistics
