Wolves to Rams helps FRCC students transfer to and graduate from CSU in STEM, natural resources, behavioral sciences, and biomedical sciences.

Wolves to Rams NIH Research Traineeship (internship)

 History of the NIH Logo | National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The NIH Traineeship provides training and experience in biomedical and behavioral research for 6 students per year. The Traineeship lasts for two full years, one at FRCC and one at CSU, including summers.  Trainees receive training workshops at FRCC to prepare them for undergraduate research in the summer before transfer. After transfer to CSU, Trainees receive academic support, participate in a learning community, and continue research. Trainees receive payment up to $40,000 over 24 months during the two-year program. This Traineeship requires a large commitment from Trainees over a 24 month period. Having 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.
