The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is pleased to announce the 2017 Introduction to Cancer Research Careers (ICRC) Program. ICRC encourages individuals from populations underrepresented in science or financially disadvantaged backgrounds to seek internship opportunities at the NCI. Successful ICRC applicants will take part in a 2-day sponsored campus visit to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, where they will have the opportunity to learn about the various scientist-in-training programs, participate in laboratory tours, and interview for either a summer or post-baccalaureate (1-year) internship. Participants selected for internships will receive a monthly stipend, round-trip travel, and a summer housing subsidy. Housing for the interns is not included, however, a list of housing resources will be provided.
Our goal is to encourage a diverse group of talented students to explore careers in biomedical research. You can help us meet this goal by sharing this information with students and faculty contacts you feel would benefit from this opportunity. Please refer to the attached brochure and the ICRC website for additional information, http://icrc.nci.nih.gov.
Applications are due Wednesday, November 16th. Reference letters are due Monday, November 21st. If you have additional questions please reply to this e-mail.
