LSI Perrigo Undergraduate Summer Fellowship Program
The LSI Perrigo Undergraduate Summer Fellowship is open to all undergraduates currently enrolled in a Michigan college or university (not graduating before December 1, 2024). Priority is given to rising juniors and seniors.
Students interested in chemical biology, biochemistry, life sciences, cell biology, pharmacology or related fields, are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should have excellent academic records. Some experience working in a lab is preferred.
During the summer, fellows will engage in opportunities for science communication and chalk talks, mentor lunches, workshops, dinner outings in Ann Arbor, and other activities to build a network with other summer fellows, current students and postdoctoral researchers, Perrigo alumni, and the wider University of Michigan and Life Sciences Institute communities.
Fellows will work full-time (40 hours / week) in their assigned labs over the summer, present a poster, and participate in a research symposium to present their work to the campus community at the end of the program. Fellows and are expected to stay for the full duration of the program: June 3, 2024 through August 9, 2024. (Special allowances may be made for students whose school semester does not end before the program begins.)
A $6,000 stipend will be awarded to each fellow. In addition an $2,500 allowance is given for housing once the program begins.
Funding may be subject to federal and/or state income taxes.
Additional Note: Receiving this stipend may impact your financial aid awards for the current and upcoming academic year. Please speak with your college/university's office of financial aid for more information.
