HHMI Summer Research Fellowships for Wesleyan Students
We are pleased to announce the 2013 HHMI Summer Research Program at Wesleyan University which will run from May 28 to August 1, 2013. This program is open to Frosh, Sophomores and Juniors currently enrolled at Wesleyan University.
Wesleyan faculty members serve as mentors in the HHMI Summer Research Program. The purview of the Hughes Program is life sciences. Therefore, it is expected that all applications will relate to the life sciences. To complement the research experience, the Summer Program also includes weekly seminars and workshops, a symposium, various social events, and a closing Poster Session. (See Summer Program Menu on left.)
Students in groups under-represented in the sciences, including women, are especially encouraged to take advantage of this summer research opportunity.
Interested Wesleyan students should apply online here to the summer research program and should arrange for their research mentor, and a second faculty member, to submit a letters of recommendation to firstname.lastname@example.org. The application should be completed in consultation with the faculty mentor. All applications are due on Friday, March 8 and awards will be announced by March 25.
The Summer Fellowship stipend for 2013 will be $4,100. It is expected that all summer students will work full time on their research and will not take on additional part-time employment during the summer program.
Dual Mentored Summer Research
To encourage cross-fertilization between fields, we have instituted a separately budgeted component of the summer undergraduate research program for students who are jointly mentored by two faculty in complementing fields - e.g. life and information sciences. The dual mentored research scholarships encourage faculty and students to explore ways in which their research can benefit from interdisciplinary combinations of fields.
