Overview of RISE Program
The Research Initiative for
Scientific Enhancement (RISE) is a program sponsored by a grant from
the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Its goal is to increase the
interest, skills, and competitiveness of students in pursuit of
biomedical research careers. Two distinct programs exist to meet the
unique academic needs and professional demands of the biomedical
research field: The RISE Starters Program and RISE Fellows Program.
are first-time freshmen and sophomores who are interested in the
biomedical research field. Participants receive extensive mentoring and
academic support as well as specially designed courses to prepare them
for success in their majors and to train them to be scientists. As
juniors and seniors, students may apply to be RISE Fellows.
are juniors and seniors who receive financial support to carry out
undergraduate research with a CSULB faculty member, and participate in
academic and professional development opportunities in order to prepare
them for graduate school and biomedical research careers. Questions
about the RISE Fellows Program? Contact Dr. Marco Lopez at (562)
985-5846 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
RISE Starters Program
What is RISE and the RISE Starters program?
is sponsored by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Its goal is to increase the number of students going on to careers in
the biomedical sciences. RISE Starters receive extensive mentoring and
academic support as well as specially designed courses in the freshman
and sophomore years to prepare them for success in their majors and to
train them to be scientists. As juniors and seniors, students can apply
to be RISE Fellows and receive financial support to carry out
undergraduate research with a CSULB faculty member.
Who is eligible to participate?
If you are a student majoring in any of the biological sciences,
biochemistry or chemistry, and you have career goals in the biomedical
sciences, the RISE Starter program may be right for you. Because one of
the aims of the NIH is to increase the number of students from certain
ethnic groups who go on to careers as scientists, we especially
encourage applications from students who are African American,
Hispanic, Native American, or U.S. Pacific Islanders. Students must be
U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the
United States. Selection criteria will also include your career goals
and academic preparation, as well as interest in undergraduate research.
What are the benefits of participating?
In addition to taking special courses, you will work closely with a
faculty mentor and peer mentor for the first two years at CSULB and
receive academic advising and support tailored to your needs. RISE
activities will develop speaking and writing skills, provide
information about research opportunities at CSULB, and offer tips on
preparing for graduate or medical school and careers in science. You
will be part of a learning community of students and faculty members
who care about your success.
What are the expectations for participants?
As a RISE Starter, you will work with an advisor who will help you plan
your first semester schedule, which will include a freshman seminar as
well as appropriate math, science, and general education classes. You
are expected to participate in regular activities with your fellow RISE
starters. Depending on your academic preparation, you may have the
opportunity to get a head start on the fall through summer workshops,
and you will be expected to enroll in supplemental instruction in
designated courses. In year two, you will continue to work with your
mentors, take classes in your major and for general education, and
participate in special classes in scientific writing and research

NASA ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR AERONAUTICS SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
WASHINGTON -- NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate will
begin accepting scholarship applications on Sept. 1, 2009, for the
2010 academic year. The application deadline is Jan. 11, 2010.
"These scholarships are a fantastic way to support our brightest
students and encourage them to finish their education, expose them to
NASA's research programs and inspire them to pursue a career in
aeronautics," said Jaiwon Shin, associate administrator for the
Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in
NASA expects to award 20 undergraduate and five graduate scholarships
to students in aeronautics or related fields. Undergraduate students
entering their second year of study will receive up to $15,000 per
year for two years and the opportunity to receive a $10,000 stipend
by interning at a NASA research center during the summer. Graduate
students will receive up to $35,000 per annually for up to three
years, with an opportunity to receive a $10,000 stipend interning at
a NASA research center up to two consecutive summers.
Students who have not committed to a specific academic institution or
program still may apply. However, if accepted, they must be admitted
by fall 2010 into a suitable aeronautical engineering program or
related field of study at an accredited U.S. university. All
applicants must be U.S. citizens. Scholarship money may be used for
tuition and other school-related expenses.
NASA's Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate conducts cutting-edge,
fundamental research in traditional and emerging disciplines. The
intent is to help transform the nation's air transportation system
and to support development of future air and space vehicles. Goals
include improving airspace capacity and flexibility; aviation safety
and aircraft performance; reducing overall noise, engine emissions
and fuel usage.
