The objective of the University of California Santa Cruz Post-Baccalaureate Research Program (PREP) is to provide individuals from underrepresented groups who have recently obtained their baccalaureate degrees with intensive research experience. This will strengthen their candidacy for admission to the nation’s strongest Ph.D. programs, and prepare them to earn Ph.D. degrees in the biomedical sciences. PREP scholars will be appointed for 9 months (max 24 months).
