The NUTGAP program seeks to provide FVSU and SSU undergraduates with experience that will prepare them for graduate study in nutritional biology. The program consists of two major components:
- academic year preparation for FVSU and SSU students;
- summer research and mentoring for students selected as NUTGAP Scholars
NUTGAP scholars will receive a summer stipend of $4400, with housing, meals, and expenses of travel to Davis covered by the NUTGAP program.
In addition, NUTGAP includes:
- research presentations both at the end of the summer and at ABRCMS, with travel paid by NUTGAP;
- follow-up mentoring for students who have completed the NUTGAP program, with the goal of admission to a strong doctoral program in nutritional biology.
