UTEP PRELS Fellowship
The UTEP LSAMP PRELS (Post-baccalaureate research opportunities for LSAMP students) nominations period is closed.
The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) recognizes the importance of undergraduate research experiences, especially for individuals from underrepresented populations entering graduate school or contemplating a career in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce. During the pandemic this type of research experience was limited due to health concerns, so many students in programs supported by the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation Program (LSAMP) did not have access. Undergraduate research experiences are often the most meaningful way that LSAMP participants have exposure to the kinds of field-, computational- and/or laboratory-based research that will engage and inspire them to enter a STEM graduate program or career.
PRELS is open to students who have graduated with their undergraduate degrees in a STEM field and are currently taking a gap year or performing research work with a mentor/lab at UTEP. PRELS fellows may NOT be employed on campus and they MUST NOT be currently enrolled in courses or active in a graduate or doctoral program during the fellowship participation. The fellowship includes a $25,000 participatory stipend to be distributed in 3-semester payments (one full academic year).
* Nominations for Summer 2023 PRELS closed on May 22, 2023.
