PEMRAP I is not offered in the summer semester.

Before you start, please familiarize yourself with the program description. Also note that participation with PEMRAP requires a significant time commitment of four to eight hours in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital emergency room and a two-hour class session each week.

The steps

  1. Complete and submit the application form
    (Opens 03/01/2024 @ 9:00 a.m.)
  2. Self-enroll in the PEMRAP admissions Canvas page
  3. Submit a 300 word essay to Canvas in Assignments
    (due by 04/01/2024 @11:59 p.m.)

The essay

Application decisions will be based primarily on the merits of a 300 word essay that answers each of the following questions:

  1. Why would you like to participate in PEMRAP?
  2. What are your expectations of the program?
  3. What qualities and experiences do you bring to the research associate position?

The application form and Canvas self-enrollment should be done right away. 

Planning ahead

In addition to basic biographical information, students will be asked to provide the name and email address of their academic advisor on the application form.

While we are not accepting letters of recommendation, applicants will have the option to provide the contact information for one reference we may contact with questions. It should be someone in a position of authority:

  1. an employer, a lab or project lead, or other
  2. from within the university or in the community
  3. within the past two years

All applicants will be notified of the status of their application on or before April 16th.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept students enrolled in the post-baccalaureate program at this time.
