Formed in September 2004, the Alliance is an academic consortium designed to increase diversity in the healthcare and research workforce. A primary focus of the Alliance is to provide summer internship and research opportunities for talented minority students who are pursuing careers in health and the biomedical sciences. The Alliance also provides summer fellowships for faculty members who teach in those areas. The aim of the program is to reduce disparities in access to quality care between racial and ethnic minorities and our country’s majority population. During the Summer 2005, eight students were partnered with mentors from the University of Nebraska and VCU. The average cost to underwrite one summer internship experience is $5,000.
