Eligibility Information

To be eligible for NIGMS T32 support, a student must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, enrolled in either the Pharmacology, Interdisciplinary Toxicology or Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences graduate programs, and be working on a Ph.D. thesis project in one of the SPaT training faculty laboratories.

Applicants from underrepresented minority groups and those with special needs are encouraged to apply to the Graduate Program in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences (GPIBS). The UAMS Graduate School and the SPaT Program do not discriminate against applicants or students with special needs. The UAMS Division for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Graduate School, and the UAMS Student Wellness Program  have in place a process for assisting these students.   We are members of Ark-AHEAD (Arkansas Affiliate of the Association on Higher Education And Disability).
