Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
The UGSRF program recruits U.S. and international undergraduate students who have had less than nine months of prior laboratory research experience to complete 10-weeks of research in the laboratory of an established APS investigator. UGSRFs receive a $4,000 stipend, two years of complimentary APS membership, and additional funds to attend and present at the Experimental Biology meeting.

UGSRFs participate in hands-on research and learn to develop a hypothesis, design and troubleshoot experiments, collect and analyze data, and write and present results. In addition, Fellows have the opportunity to:

-network with other APS Fellows interested in and conducting biomedical or basic research,

-explore the nature of research and the scientific process,

-investigate physiology career options and what it takes to find career success,

-learn about scientific writing and draft a meeting abstract,

-learn about common ethical issues in figure and text preparation, and

-pose their career questions to APS members.
