Students selected to participate as NUTGAP Scholars will be mentored individually by faculty at UC Davis, home to top-ranked programs in nutritional biology, with research in basic science and direct outreach to practitioners.
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.
