Purpose: to support vacation research by undergraduate geneticists. Grants are available to provide financial support for undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience in any area of genetics by carrying out a research project over the long vacation, usually prior to their final year.
Applications must be made by Principal Investigators (PI) at Universities or Research Institutes. The application must be for a named student and is not transferable. The project should be realistic and achievable by a student in this time frame: attention should be paid to student training needs in the application. The award will be made to the host institution.
The studentship will consist of an award of £200 per week for up to 8 weeks to the student plus a grant of up to £750 to cover expenses incurred by the host laboratory.
The student must be able to attend a workshop that will take place in Oxford, 30th August – September 2020, providing an opportunity for all students to get together, discuss their findings, make new friends and start to develop their professional contact network. If necessary, a Carer’s Award will be available to allow those with responsibilities to attend the Summer School.
Undergraduate students who wish to do vacation research projects are encouraged to seek a PI to sponsor them and to develop a project application with the sponsor.
