Scholarships Descriptions
The Biochemistry Undergraduate Summer Research Awards aid undergraduates in gaining focused, full-time research experience early in their academic career. Awards support students working full-time in a research lab during the summer.
The Biochemistry Undergraduate Summer Research Awards aid undergraduates in gaining focused, full-time research experience early in their academic career. Awards support students working full-time in a research lab during the summer.
Must be an enrolled undergraduate for the following fall semester; must be a declared biochemistry major; must be working in a lab at UW-Madison full-time (equivalent of 30-40 hours per week over eight weeks) during the upcoming summer. Students may not accept other research funding or awards for use during the summer in which they will receive the biochemistry summer research award. If a student receives a Hilldale award, the Hilldale work (i. e. registration for the corresponding credits of directed study/senior thesis) must be performed during the academic year, so that the biochemistry award can be utilized for the summer research project. If a student chooses to accept a non-biochemistry summer award, they may not move their biochemistry award to a different term/semester but rather must choose one award or the other.
