Our next class of UAB PREP Scholars will arrive June 2, 2014 and the application deadline will be February 1, 2014. We anticipate that it will take 1 to 2 years to complete the program. During this time, an Individual Development Plan (IDP) will be prepared to guide each student's participation in the program. The benefit each student receives from the training will depend, in part, on the attainment of the goals of their IDP. As part of the IDP, each student will be given assignments related to math and writing skills as well as their assignment to work in a laboratory to complete a research project.
