Perrigo/LSI Summer Fellows


Each year the U-M Life Sciences Institute offers an immersive, hands-on fellowship in basic science research. The Perrigo Undergraduate Summer Fellowship is open to all undergraduates currently enrolled in any Michigan college or university (priority given to rising juniors and seniors). Students will work side-by-side with mentors in the LSI labs for 10 weeks, and will receive a $4,000 stipend and $1,800 in housing support. Students interested in chemical biology, biochemistry, cell biology, pharmacology or related fields, are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have excellent academic records. Some experience working in a lab is preferred. Fellows will work full-time in their assigned labs over the summer, and are expected to stay for the full duration of the program. Special allowances may be made for students whose school semester does not end before the program begins. At the end of the summer, fellows participate in a research symposium and present their work to the campus community.
