The UVM Cancer Center announces a new program supporting Summer Student Fellowships in Cancer Research. A $3,000 stipend will be awarded to up to five graduate or medical school students for cancer-related basic, clinical/translational, or population science research conducted over an 8-12 week period under the mentorship of a UVM Cancer Center Full or Associate Member. Each mentor may nominate one student by providing a brief (one page) description of the research project, the student’s role, and the student’s qualifications, along with the mentor’s BioSketch. Student stipend must be cleared through Student Financial Services for financial aid conflicts and student’s presence in lab must conform to Covid-19 safety precautions. Applications will be evaluated based on 1) Programmatic Alignment, 2) Project Merit, 3) Feasibility, and 4) Strength of Project Personnel.

Proposals are due by Friday, March 26, 2021 at 5:00 PM and must be submitted through UVM’s InfoReady Review portal at https://uvm.infoready4.com/
