UIC Receives Grant to Recruit Transfer Students in Sciences

Backed by a $1.4 million federal grant, the University of Illinois at Chicago will launch a new program to increase the number of underrepresented students who pursue degrees and research careers in the behavioral and biomedical sciences. The five-year grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, one of the National Institutes of Health, partners the University of Illinois at Chicago with the City Colleges of Chicago in an effort to bolster recruitment, training, mentorship, and degree completion in health-related fields for students from underrepresented backgrounds.
