The Department of Biology
at Central Michigan University has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to create a new undergraduate research opportunity—the Biology Undergraduate Mentoring Program (BUMP) called "BUMP into Research at CMU!
The overall goal of BUMP is to increase the number and diversity of individuals pursuing graduate studies in all areas of biological research. The BUMP program will recruit students from historically underrepresented groups, engage students in high-quality research projects directly mentored by our faculty, and prepare them for graduate school in the biological sciences.
To be eligible for BUMP, you must be:
- A member of one of the following groups: African Americans, Alaska Natives, American Indians, Hispanic Americans, Native Pacific Islanders, and persons with disabilities
- A citizen or permanent resident of the United States
- A currently enrolled student or accepted student at Central Michigan University
- Majoring in biology at Central Michigan University with at least two years until graduation
- Planning to attend graduate school (masters or Ph.D.) in the biological sciences
