Multiple Undergrad Summer Research Fellowships - American Physiological Society


The Undergraduate Research Excellence Fellowships program funds 6 full-time undergraduate students with significant prior laboratory research experience to work for 10 weeks during the summer in the laboratory of an established APS investigator. Each student has his/her own research question to work on during the summer. The intent of this program is to encourage students to pursue a career as a basic research scientist.
In addition, Fellows receive a travel grant to allow them to attend and present their research data at the following year's APS annual meeting, Experimental Biology (EB). EB is a broad-based scientific meeting of 5-7 diverse biological scientific societies that are members of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB). There are many opportunities for the students to mingle with other undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers at the meeting. In addition, there are hundreds of scientific presentations and posters they can attend.

The Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowship program funds 24 full-time undergraduate students with little or no laboratory research experience to work for 10 weeks during the summer in the laboratory of an established APS investigator. Each student has his/her own research question to work on during the summer. The intent of this program is to excite and encourage students to pursue a career as a basic research scientist.
In addition, Fellows receive a travel grant to allow them to attend and present their research data at the following year's APS annual meeting (Experimental Biology), which is a broad-based scientific meeting of five to seven diverse biological scientific societies that are members of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB). There are many opportunities for the students to mingle with other undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers at the meeting, in addition to all the scientific presentations and posters they can attend.
