Summer Research Programs

APS’ undergraduate summer fellowship programs allow students to participate in hands-on research in the laboratory of an established scientist. Fellows complete 10 weeks of summer research and participate in interactive online professional development activities with APS Fellows, exploring career options, responsible conduct of research, structuring research studies, developing abstracts, and presenting research posters.

 

Participants are selected based on academic merit, the quality of the proposed experience and the availability of appropriate faculty mentors. Each fellow receives a stipend plus additional funds for travel to present his or her research at the APS annual meeting Experimental Biology. Research hosts receive additional funds for student lab supplies.
