Summer Students Discover Mentored Research Experiences

Funding Supplemented by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

With the end of the college academic year Fox Chase gets an annual influx of talented undergraduates for summer research experiences.  This successful program, coordinated by Dr. Eileen Jaffe, invites students to find a Fox Chase mentor and have that mentor nominate the student for a funded summer research fellowship. In 2010, 15 students had funded projects.

This year the supplemental funding to the National Institutes of Health from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (also known as the “Stimulus Package”) has helped increase the number of students Fox Chase can support. 

In addition to the Fellowship program

There are two alternate ways for undergraduate students to be involved in summer research. The student can volunteer or the student can be hired as a summer assistant. Students are highly encouraged to review the research areas and contact faculty whose research interests them. In general students are more successful at finding positions by contacting faculty directly. Some students do however gain summer laboratory opportunities through the volunteer office or through human resources.
