  • Scholarship Description
  • The Summer Student Fellowships Program supports students, specifically advanced undergraduates and medical students, in their pursuit of Parkinson's-related summer research projects. The goal of the Parkinson's Foundation Summer Student Fellowships is to cultivate students' early interest in helping to solve, treat and end Parkinson's and providing the tools they need to transition into leaders in the field.

    Fellows work under the close supervision of a sponsor who is an expert in the Parkinson's community and oversees the project. Undergraduate students and medical students are eligible for summer fellowships. Each applicant must show a mentor with whom he or she will conduct the proposed project. This program is open to national and international applicants.

    We offer summer fellowships for 10 weeks of clinical or laboratory work with a $4,000 award. We invite fellows to apply for up to $1,000 in travel funds to attend a related scientific conference to present their research upon project completion. The award supports the student's summer research, defraying tuition costs of research credits or supplementing living or housing costs. This award may be taxable; the Parkinson's Foundation sends an IRS form 1099 to the recipient at the end of the calendar year. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
