Two Central Coast colleges are teaming up and benefitting from the National Institutes of Health grant. The grant is funding Allan Hancock College students' the opportunity to work as research interns in science labs at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo.
For four years now students from Hancock's Bridge to the Baccalaureate program have worked as summer interns. When the program began in 2009 there were 2 student enrolled and currently there 19 students participating in the program.
Hancock college is one of only six colleges in the nation chosen to receive the grant which main focus is to encourage underrepresented minority students to pursue careers in the biomedical or behavioral sciences. In addition to internship opportunities, participants in the program are offered assistance to transfer to Cal Poly after finishing their requirements at Hancock.
The Bridges to Baccalaureate program is currently accepting applications from current Hancock students and graduating high school seniors. To apply, click here.
