Undergraduate Research Scholarship

I checked and the following opportunity is NOT restricted to MCDB students and IS open to CCS students. 

The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology is pleased to announce the Summer 2011 Crowe Family Undergraduate Research Scholar award, given by the Crowe family to support undergraduate summer research in an MCDB lab. The award will provide a stipend to a student in the amount of $2300 for a commitment lasting at minimum 10 weeks in the summer of 2011.

If you have identified a faculty sponsor to work in their lab this summer and are interested in competing for this award, please contact the faculty and ask them to nominate you.

The application for the Crowe Family Undergraduate Research Scholar Award should include three documents:

1. A one page maximum description of the proposed research prepared by the undergraduate applicant.
2. A copy (unofficial) of the most recent undergraduate transcript and a listing of quarter courses in progress.
3. A brief letter from the MCDB Faculty sponsor stating that the proposed summer research will by supported in the faculty member's lab, and a brief description of who will be mentoring the student researcher during the award period.

The application documents should be submitted to Andrew Kroes at the Undergraduate Advising Office in LSB 3316 as soon as possible prior to 4PM on Friday, January 21, 2011. Selection of the award recipient is anticipated to take place shortly thereafter.
