The Study


African Americans, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, and Hispanic/Latino(a)s are chronically underrepresented in the sciences in the United States. MyScienceJourney is a four-year, prospective, longitudinal study of the academic and career trajectories of promising undergraduate minority science students. The aim of the study is to understand the psychological, contextual, and experiential factors that predict minority student persistence and success in the sciences.



The MyScienceJourney research project is funded by the Endocrine Society
