The Blueprint initiative Enhancing Neuroscience Diversity through Undergraduate Research Education Experiences (ENDURE) aims to raise interest and opportunities in neuroscience research for individuals who are typically underrepresented in the field.
The goal is to provide such individuals with training at the undergraduate level, so that they are prepared to enter and successfully complete neuroscience PhD programs. ENDURE will provide this undergraduate training through partnerships between research-intensive institutions and institutions with a substantial enrollment of neuroscience majors from diverse groups. This includes individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups; individuals with disabilities; and individuals from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
ENDURE undergraduate training programs will support a range of activities to increase student interest and involvement in the neurosciences, including research experiences, core and advanced neuroscience courses, seminars, and journal clubs.
