Project L/EARN at Rutgers – Apply by February 10th

The goal of Project L/EARN is to increase the number of students from underrepresented groups in the fields of health, mental health, and health policy research, thereby expanding the breadth of health research to include a broader range of ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic issues, concerns and perspectives.

Project L/EARN identifies students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, first generation college attenders, and those from racial/ethnic minority groups who have an interest in health-related social science fields, and provides them with training, experience and mentoring to make them stronger candidates for admission to graduate programs. Past interns have come from a variety of majors, including psychology, sociology, economics, political science, nursing, public health, pharmacy, biology, statistics, urban studies, and public policy. Project L/EARN is open to students from any U.S. college or university.

To be eligible for Project L/EARN, applicants must satisfy all four of these criteria:

  • have at least one full academic year left to complete their undergraduate degree,
