Our survey is closing Wednesday, July 15! To thank you for your time, we will email you a $25 Amazon e-card after you complete the survey. Please check your email for an invitation from the Enhance Diversity Study.

We believe that dreams, aspirations, education, and livelihoods for Black, Latinx, Indigenous and other underrepresented communities in the sciences matter. Our mission is to support inclusive opportunity and excellence in the biomedical sciences, and to assess interventions designed to promote #justice and #equity in the space of biomedical research. By completing the survey, you will make an important contribution to help us better understand the experiences of students across the nation and help achieve equity for all.

Don’t wait. Take the survey—tell your story.
