Program Goal: 
The BP-ENDURE program is designed to encourage and prepare undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds to enter into and succeed in PhD programs in the neurosciences.  BP ENDURE students get a monthly stipend and health benefits. 
 
Program Description:
The BP-ENDURE program, administered through Hunter College, is conducted in partnership with New York University, Brown University, University of Michigan, and Vanderbilt University to expose BP-ENDURE-trainees to a research-intensive curriculum and an environment of active research.
 
During the academic year students will work with a research mentor at Hunter or NYU and during the summer in one of the partnering institutions. The BP-ENDURE program selects students from both Hunter College and NYU to participate. Hunter students will receive funding in the form of tuition remission and a stipend during the academic year and will also receive summer funding.
