BUMMP aims to provide a wealth of resources for our mentees including: 

Mentorship

Through our mentorship program, we will provide our mentees with the space to receive assistance with career planning as well as to network with people from diverse backgrounds in science.  

Research FUNDING

The BUMMP Research Apprenticeship Program (BRAP) will provide research scholarships to 20 undergraduate students for two quarters this year (2020-2021). This compensation will allow students to gain hands-on research experience without additional financial strain being placed on them. 

Bi-quarterly Events

These events will include inspirational talks from biologists of color, professional development workshops, and fun nights of networking and fellowship.  

Annual Symposium

Mentees that are active in research will be able to showcase their work through talks and poster presentations. 

Distribution of donated funds:

With additional funding, more students will have the opportunity to participate in the groundbreaking research being conducted in San Diego and operational costs of BUMMP can be covered. We hope that you will consider supporting this endeavor. A portion of the funds will be used for hosting events and compensation of graduate student mentors.
