Parkinson's Disease Foundation -- Summer Student Fellowships
The Parkinson's Disease Foundation is now accepting applications for Summer Student Fellowships. PDF's Summer Fellowship program is used to support students--from advanced undergraduates to graduate and medical students--in their pursuit of Parkinson's-related summer research projects. Fellows work under the close supervision of a mentor who is an expert in the Parkinson's Disease community and oversees the project. Fellowships are offered for 10 weeks of laboratory work, with an award amount of $4,000. This award is to be used to support the student's summer research, for example, to defray tuition costs of research credits or to supplement living/housing costs.


Undergraduate students, graduate students and medical students are all eligible for summer fellowships.  Each applicant must identify a mentor with whom he or she will conduct the proposed project. This program is open to both national and international applicants.
