NIH Undergraduate Scholarship Program

The NIH Undergraduate Scholarship Program (UGSP) is a competitive scholarship program sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for students from disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in pursuing biomedical, behavioral and social science careers at the NIH. The UGSP program provides up to $20,000 a year for up to four years to pay for tuition, educational expenses and reasonable living expenses. Approximately 15 scholarships are awarded each year. Recipients must participate in the NIH 10-week Summer Laboratory Experience after each year of scholarship support. Recipients also commit to one year of full-time employment at the NIH for each year of support. Candidates must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale or be within the top 5 percent of their class
