The goal of the Diversification of Our Research Scientists (D.O.O.R.S) Scholarship, presented by the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute in partnership with Promega Corporation, is to recognize and empower underrepresented students in STEM by offering a $5,000 award that can be used towards resources to support tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance at an educational institution, including fees, books, supplies, and equipment required for courses within that institution.
In addition, the D.O.O.R.S. awardees will participate in mentorship relationships. D.O.O.R.S. Scholars will be matched with a mentor from Promega for 1:1 sessions and have larger group sessions focusing on building skills like scientific writing, presentation giving, exploring potential career paths, self-care, and conflict resolution in the workplace, and more.
