BRUSH Summer Research Program at Michigan State University

The Biomedical Research for University Students in Health Sciences (BRUSH) program at Michigan State University is a Summer Research Program for students from populations underrepresented in biomedical research. The BRUSH Program is suitable for students interested in biomedical research, and it is also valuable for students interested in human medicine or veterinary medicine.


During the 12-week BRUSH Program students conduct research under the guidance of a faculty mentor and also participate in ancillary activities to help them explore research as a career and succeed in the conduct and presentation of their research. The program is best suited for students who have completed their sophomore or junior year of undergraduate studies, although applicants with less college credit will be considered.


Students in this program are paid $4,800 for the summer, and additional funds are available to cover the cost of program related expenses (housing and conference travel).
