UCI MIND – Beall Scholar Program
Scheduled to launch in 2021, the UCI MIND – Beall Scholar Program will engage racially and ethnically diverse students from local high schools in research and education on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia to inspire future academic and career choices in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), especially geriatric healthcare and research. This program aims to provide skills and experiences that enhance these students’ opportunities and wherewithal when applying to college, especially for majors focused on aging, neuroscience, and healthcare.
