How are SMDP Scholars selected?
A selection committee composed of representatives from the medical technology, biotechnology and/or consumer healthcare industries carries out student selection for the Scientist Mentoring & Diversity Program (SMDP). The committee evaluates applicants based on predetermined criteria. Their recommendations are compiled and a summary report is used to determine the final selection of participants. Special consideration is given to how many weeks prior to the application deadline applicants submit their materials.
How is SMDP publicized and how are applicants invited?
The International Center for Professional Development (ICPD) distributes information through its websites and sends emails directly to universities and organizations across the United States and Puerto Rico. SMDP Alumni have also become a large source for word of mouth referrals.
Who serves on the SMDP Scholar selection committee?
The SMDP Selection Committee is composed of ICPD staff and representatives from industry and academia.
