RNA Institute Undergraduate Summer Fellowship

The RNA Institute will offer competitive summer fellowships for undergraduate students interested in pursuing interdisciplinary research within the lab of one of our Institute faculty. Students will receive a stipend and will be expected to pursue research for a significant portion of the summer. At the end of the summer, students will present their research to their peers, donors and members of the Institute. Interested students should contact one of the Institute faculty to discuss the opportunities available in their lab of choice.

This opportunity is open to undergraduate students enrolled for Fall 2021.
