Programs and Benefits
KU/Haskell 500 Nations Bridge Collaboration (Bridge)
The 500 Nations Bridge Program provides opportunities for students from Haskell Indian Nations University that facilitate their transition from Haskell to other universities, and thereby increases the number of students who complete degrees in the biomedical sciences. The program provides research experiences within laboratories of KU faculty. Students who are accepted into the program must be seeking an undergraduate degree in the biomedical sciences and have an interest in pursuing a career in biomedical research.
KU Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC)
The MARC and pre-MARC programs provide support for undergraduate students from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences, and who are interested in pursuing careers in biomedical research. Major components of the program include mentored student research experiences, enhancement programs in introductory science and math courses, enrichment activities such as group seminars, faculty and peer mentoring, and attendance at scientific meetings.
KU Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP)
KU PREP recruits talented students who have completed their baccalaureate degree from Haskell, KU, or elsewhere. These post-baccalaureate scholars complete a program of research, coursework and professional development that will prepare them to become highly competitive applicants to graduate school in biomedical disciplines.
KU/Haskell Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Award (IRACDA)
The IRACDA program provides three years of support to postdoctoral fellows in various health-related research fields, preparing fellows for research and teaching careers in academia. The goals of the program are to enhance research skills by providing mentored research experiences while developing teaching skills through assignments that promote the advancement of under represented minorities. The IRACDA fellows conduct research at KU and become involved with teaching students from Haskell Indian Nations University.
KU Peer-Led Undergraduate Supplements (PLUS)
The Peer-Led Undergraduate Supplement sessions are specifically designed to bridge gaps between teaching and learning. These sessions are coupled with interactive exercises that reinforce lecture materials in a small group setting, and are open to all students enrolled in the course. Those who regularly attend this free academic support activity perform better than the class average. Please come to any discussion section that fits your schedule. The sessions are free!
