To apply for the Mississippi INBRE Outreach Scholars program, fill out the form below and attach a resume, and a personal statement. Please be sure to enter the required information correctly, as this will be crucial in notifying students of their award status.
Please note that Mississippi INBRE uses email as the primary form of communication, for following up on application details that may be missing as well as notification of acceptance of declination of student awards. All Mississippi INBRE program staff are affiliated with The University of Southern Mississippi, and therefore will communicate via email from a usm.edu email address. Please make sure that our email communication is not being flagged to your junk mail folders.
The personal statement should address the following:
• Why are you interested in community-based research?
• List any past research related activities you have been involved. Note: Previous research experience is not a requirement for acceptance to our program.
• Discuss the research role you would like to serve and the types of activities that are of interest to you.
• Briefly describe how involvement in research activities will enhance your academic/career goals.
After you submit your application, you will be contacted to schedule an interview date and time.
