BRITE Application


Basic Research Immersion Training Experience (BRITE)
An NIH T-32 Training Program for Veterinary Students in Hypothesis-Based Biomedical Research
College of Veterinary Medicine
Kansas State University (KSU)
Manhattan, KS

The BRITE program is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and designed for DVM students who are considering careers in research. The BRITE program offers an academic-year mentored research experience distinct from the professional curriculum. BRITE students are provided with stipend support, so that they may apply their rigorous didactic basic science training to a research problem relevant to human and animal health. All applicants must be currently enrolled in a DVM or VMD program. The BRITE program is open to veterinary students enrolled in the College of Veterinary Medicine at KSU as well as those in other colleges of veterinary medicine in the United States.

For KSU-CVM students, the program can begin after the 1st or 2nd year of DVM curriculum. The BRITE scholar selected for 2014-15 is expected to begin no later than August 1, 2014. The start time for this program may be more flexible for applicants from other institutions. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or have permanent residency status.

For students wishing to be considered, applications are due on April 11, 2014. Electronic submission is acceptable. Late applications may not be considered.
