The California State University was awarded an unprecedented $60 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help prepare low-income and minority students to enter careers in biomedical research. The five-year grant will allow CSU Long Beach, CSU Northridge, and San Francisco State University to incorporate mentorship programs, family engagement, improved instruction, and community-based research projects into their curricula. These programs respond to the national need for a diverse pool of researchers, help increase graduation rates in STEM fields, and prepare CSU students to make a significant impact on the future of health care.
