What is RISE?

RISE (Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement) is a federally funded program designed to increase the number of underrepresented faculty, students, and investigators who are performing research in the biomedical sciences. RISE programs support research by faculty members and minority serving institutions, strengthen the institutions' biomedical research capabilities, and provide opportunities for students to work as part of a research team.

The UTSA RISE program is student oriented and provides both financial and professional development support for up to 40 undergraduate and 15 doctoral students while they pursue training in biomedical research. UTSA's RISE programs, RISE Undergraduate and RISE PhD, are invaluable for the development of the next generation of biomedical researchers. Applications to individual programs are available on the program web sites.
