Fresno State RISE Program

RISE - Research Training Initiative for Scientific Enhancement Program

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded RISE (Research Training Initiative for Scientific Enhancement) program is designed to assist underrepresented students to attain their doctoral degrees in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. The Fresno State RISE Program supports research training for students who are interested in developing professional careers as research scientists. This federally funded training program is designed to ensure that talented and motivated minority or disadvantaged students can obtain the background and skills that they need to enter and succeed in doctoral education. Highly motivated faculty members from multiple RISE eligible departments are committed to developing a highly interactive program to promote and ease the transition of students into Ph.D. programs. A range of curricular, research and co-curricular activities are planned to train and provide financial support for twelve undergraduate  RISE students each year.
