About the Award

Dean’s Awards are available for students to enhance their education and career goals.

  • Students must major in the Life Sciences
  • In exceptional financial need
  • Those from groups under-represented or AB540 eligible are given preference.

Usually, this award is used to do research or have job-shadowing experience. Due to COVID-19 related campus restrictions, we are asking you to propose how you will use these funds to advance your career and education.  This means you could use these funds to work on a research project, work in a lab, or participate in a community-based research/clinical outreach program.  These efforts need to comprise full-time (40hrs a week, for 8-10 weeks) research or lab training.
