Summer Research Awards in BME

The Biomedical Engineering Department is providing support for undergraduate research in the Summer of 2019.  Awards of $4000 will be extended on a competitive basis.  

These grants will support BME students in immersive, full-time, 9-week summer research experiences within BME faculty labs.  The award money is allocated for student support and not toward research expenses. To encourage deep involvement in research, supported students will be expected to extend their research experience into the following academic year by enrolling in BME 499 in Fall 2019 and continuing their research.  Students are expected to be involved in the lab from June 24 - August 30 (1 week of vacation can be taken during this 10-week period).

The online application is available here.  You must submit a summer undergraduate research proposal and have the support of a BME faculty member.  

Acceptance for this program will be rolling so you are encouraged to submit your application early. We expect applications to close by April 3, 2019.

You may submit the same undergraduate research proposal for a Northwestern Undergraduate Research Grant (URG) and are encouraged to do so.
