Prospective Scholars

Do you see health inequities in your community?

Are you intrigued by research and investigation?

Do you want to solve health problems through innovative research?

We face a number of challenges and opportunities in advancing the health and well-being of people in our own communities and around the world.  For instance, we are confronted with many health-related disparities and inequities.  In many cases, more information about the causes of these inequities is needed to determine solutions to move towards a just society.  The world needs educated, passionate, and dedicated scientific researchers to ask the difficult questions and commit themselves to finding the answers.

BUILD EXITO is a program designed to support undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing research careers in biomedical, behavioral, clinical, health, and social sciences.  We are looking for passionate individuals from diverse backgrounds to join the future generation of scientific researchers.  You don’t need research experience—we help you prepare for a future research career.  We are looking for people who want to make a difference by working on solutions to pressing health issues so that all people have the chance to lead healthy lives.
