COR Minority Opportunities
COR is an Honors Program for academically talented underrepresented minority students majoring in Anthropology, Psychology or Sociology and interested in research careers.
The National Institute of Mental Health - Career Opportunities in Research Education and Training (NIMH-COR) Program is intended to strengthen research and research training experiences in scientific disciplines related to mental health. The NIMH-COR Program is directed specifically to four-your colleges and universities that serve substantial numbers of students of one or more racial/ethnic minority groups, including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, Asians, and Pacific Islanders. Persons belonging to these racially/ethnically defined groups are underrepresented in biomedical and behavioral science relevant to research in the mental health fields. An applicant institution must propose a two-year NIMH-COR Program Honors Undergraduate program for which six to ten highly talented third and fourth year undergraduate students will be selected. Students will be provided with special research training experiences designed to improve their qualifications for entry into advanced research training programs leading to a Ph.D. or M.D. research career degree.
The Anthropology representatives to the COR Steering Committee is Ida Susser.
