Wolves 2 Rams NSF Scholarship
The NSF Scholarship includes customized CSU transfer advising, STEM workshops, faculty mentorship, and a peer community. Scholars can receive up to 7 total semesters of scholarship money (3 semesters at FRCC and 4 at CSU). Each year we select 30 new scholars, and each scholar can receive up to $30,000 over 7 semesters. Scholars will participate in professional conferences, graduate school preparation, and research lab experiences. The scholarship is renewable based on active participation, commitment, and academic performance. The Wolves 2 Rams scholarship supports students in many STEM fields such as engineering, chemistry, math, computer science, wildlife biology, forestry, horticulture and many other fields.
Wolves 2 Rams NIH Paid Research Internship
The NIH Research Internship provides training and experience in biomedical and behavioral research for 6 students per year. The paid Internship lasts for two full years, one at FRCC and one at CSU. Interns receive training workshops at FRCC to prepare them for undergraduate research in the summer before transfer. After transfer to CSU, Interns receive academic support, participate in a learning community, and continue research. Interns receive payment up to $40,000 over 24 months during the two-year program. This Internship requires a large commitment from student Interns over a 24 month period. Having paid research experience is critical for students pursuing behavioral and biomedical fields such as psychology, biomedical engineering, health and exercise science, microbiology, medical school, pharmaceuticals, biology, neuroscience, and many other human health fields.
