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 sponsor who is an expert in the Parkinson's community and oversees the project.  Typically, summer fellowships are offered for 10 weeks of laboratory work with an award of $3,000. 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. Please note that this year, all applications must be submitted online through the PDF website at; no paper copies will be accepted.

Deadline for applications opens in December 2014 and will close on January 26, 2015.
