Lehman College has developed a collaborative workforce development model which has been successfully implemented in our international programs. This model is based on collaboration of all stakeholders—educators, employers, community organizations, funding agencies, etc—involved in the students’ educational and career pathways. An important feature of this model is a comprehensible approach to addressing the needs and interests of the students through customized, contextualized curricula.
The Department of Biological Sciences, with funding from the HHMI Undergraduate Science Education grant, has established an Undergraduate Scholars Program to support underrepresented and/or economically disadvantaged biology majors. Six HHMI funded students will work twenty hours per week in a faculty mentor's laboratory. Each Hunter/HHMI Undergraduate Scholar will receive a monthly stipend, and travel, room and board, and registration at a scientific conference. Hunter/HHMI Undergraduate Scholars must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and be entering their junior year.
The Alfred Harcourt Foundation, founded in New York in 1962, is named for Alfred Harcourt, one of the founders of the distinguished publishing firm, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. The Harcourt Foundation annually provides a grant to the CUNY Research Foundation for distribution by Hunter College to award 30 new Harcourt Fellowships, to be divided equally between Hunter College STEM programs and The Teacher Academy programs at Brooklyn, City, Staten Island, Hunter, Lehman, Queens, and York colleges.
The Emerging Scholars Program provides a $500 stipend for a student researcher assisting you with your research or other scholarly endeavors. The purpose of the program is to help students develop a close relationship with a faculty member and promote a practical understanding of material learned in courses, while providing you with some assistance.
The City University of New York's 2015 Summer Undergraduate Research Program (CSURP) invites applications from talented undergraduates interested in research careers in the sciences.
The Partnership offers undergraduate and graduate training programs designed to provide opportunities for outstanding students to successfully conduct competitive biomedical research at CCNY and/or MSK, as well as to provide mentorship and guidance for career decisions.
The CSTEP Program is designed to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students who enroll in and complete undergraduate and graduate programs leading to professional licensure or to careers in the fields of science, technology and education at the College of Staten Island. Exposing CSTEP students to the STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic) disciplines will help reshape the culture of these professions as students reach their desired career goals.
The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) takes place at Brooklyn College. The purpose of the CSTEP program is to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged undergraduate and graduate students who complete preprofessional or professional education programs of study that lead to professional licensure and to careers in mathematics, science, technology and health-related fields (hereafter referred to as CSTEP-targeted professions).
The Catalyst Scholarship Program at Hunter College, established in 2009 through a grant by the National Science Foundation, provides a partnership between Environmental Earth Sciences, Physics, Computer Science and Mathematics.
The purpose of this program is to form a linkage among the three CUNY Colleges in the Bronx (Lehman College, Hostos Community College, and Bronx Community College) that allows STEM scholars from Hostos and BCC the opportunity to complete a summer laboratory research training program at Lehman College.
Blueprint Program for Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity Through Undergraduate Research Education Experience (BP-ENDURE)
Training and research opportunities in Neuroscience are available at Hunter College.
Authentic Research Experience in Microbiology (AREM) is a modular approach to integrating genomics research into the general biology or microbiology curriculum. AREM investigates the microbiome of New York City across its boroughs, its streets and parks and across time. AREM is the first large scale genomics approach to understanding makeup of microbial communities in the urban environment. AREM was created by Professor Theodore Muth at Brooklyn College and was funded by the National Science Foundation. Follow the links below to find out more about having an AREM module in biology courses at your school.
Mechatronics Technology Center City Tech's Mechatronics Technology Center (MTC) was established in September 2010 by a grant from the National Science Foundation under the Advanced Technology Education (ATE) program. It provides a multidisciplinary platform for students to learn the latest mecharonics/robotic technology and to gain experience through hands-on projects.
The awards honor the work of K. Patricia Cross, Professor Emerita of Higher Education at the University of California-Berkeley.
Student researchers are provided a platform to share their research findings, enhance their presentations skills, and/or receive guidance from seasoned researchers, mature scholars, and their peers. In addition to monetary awards for competitive presentations, Minority Access will distribute summaries of exemplary research presentations to research departments of pharmaceutical and/or high tech firms.
The Systems Biology Center New York (SBCNY) Undergraduate Research Program offers summer research fellowships to City University of New York (CUNY) undergraduates who are planning to pursue PhD or MD/PhD degree programs after graduation and who are interested in incorporating systems biology approaches into the research that they pursue.
Public Health Solutions (PHS), one of the largest not-for-profit organizations in New York City and a nationally recognized Public Health Institute (PHI), addresses critical public health needs such as food security and nutrition, women’s reproductive health; early childhood development and family support; and so much more.
In 2007 the ESA Foundation established a scholarship program to assist women and minority students who are pursuing degrees leading to careers in Computer & Video Game Arts. In 2009 we extended this opportunity to graduating high school seniors and doubled the amount of awards granted from 15 to 30.
An integral part of the mission of the Aerospace States Association (ASA) is to support and develop initiatives that significantly enhance student and teacher education in space and aeronautics and increases the number of students in the pipeline.
The REU Program: • Offers advanced research training for one academic year to 12 undergraduate students who attend four-year colleges and universities in the New York metropolitan area. • Targets students who belong to historically disadvantaged groups. • Provides a concentrated research experience in which each student plans and executes an independent project and works with a faculty mentor and their research team on existing research projects.
