Parkinson's Disease Foundation Summer Studen 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.
