The Biology Undergraduate Scholars Program (BUSP) is a small, grant-funded enrichment program that helps EOP students succeed in science by putting them through workshops for general chemistry and calculus. These are similar to the co-classes offered by the Student Academic Success Center for the general student body (they are taught by the same people, in fact). BUSP students also take a 1-unit program seminar every quarter.
BUSP recruits students during STEP, an EOP summer advising program, and is most active during the students' first year.
BUSP Honors, a related program, is open to all undergraduate sophomores and juniors in the sciences. To apply, students must find a faculty sponsor and develop a research proposal. BUSP Honors will fund full-time summer research for a select number of proposals. To find out more, visit the College of Biological Sciences in 202 Life Sciences. The current program director is Connie Champagne.
