TB Scholars Program

Through funding by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, TBSP supports undergraduate students in the greater Seattle area interested in TB research who demonstrate academic excellence, are from groups who have been historically underrepresented in medicine and/or have lived experience from disadvantaged backgrounds overcoming significant adversity, whether due to prejudice, discrimination, geographical, social, physical, economic, or other factors. Applicants should be strongly motivated to pursue a career in the sciences. Receive up to $4,000 for full-time summer experience over 10 weeks.
