HHMI's Janelia Scholars program gives undergraduates an opportunity to spend 10 weeks during the summer doing research as an intern in the lab of a mentor at Janelia Farm. The scholars are encouraged to attend weekly seminars and other events at Janelia. At the end of the session, each scholar will present their work at a symposium.
We want to identify some of the very best future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians interested in our areas of research at an early career stage. We expect this to enrich the students' intellectual development and to benefit research at Janelia.
Eligibility: Any matriculated undergraduate may apply. We will not consider gender, race, ethnic origin, nationality, or religion in our admission decisions.
Program Dates: June 8 - August 14, 2009
Students are required to spend a full 10 weeks at Janelia, but we can be flexible on the specific start and end dates to accommodate different universities academic calendars. We provide accommodations in our housing village. There is also an allowance of $4,500 for the 10-week period. The program also supports the most economical travel to and from Janelia.
Application Deadline: February 16, 2009 at 2 P.M. ET.
