Sloan Foundation Minority Training Grant

The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Newark is one of only 47 programs nationwide selected to receive funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.  As a program with a proven track record of accepting minority students, GSBS is eligible for funding, which provides Sloan Foundation students with additional funds (up to $30,000) during the course of their studies.  In 2008-2009 GSBS matriculated four minority students and five more students have entered the 2009-2010 class.  Currently, there are 25 minority students enrolled in all phases of doctoral programs.
