DRIVE (Diversity, Respect, and Inclusion are Vital for Excellence) in Research Pipeline
The DRIVE (Diversity, Respect, and Inclusion are Vital for Excellence) in Research Pipeline aims to improve the diversity of the research workforce underrepresented in maternal and child health-related research while supporting mentorship and training. This program is intended to maintain and grow the pipeline of diverse students interested in pursuing biomedical research careers. DRIVE is funded by the LPFCH Children’s Fund and the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.
The DRIVE in Research Pipeline Program provides summer research experience and mentorship opportunities in maternal and child health research to underrepresented minorities (URM) / and first-generation and/or low-income (FLI) Stanford undergraduates.
