The Perrigo Undergraduate Summer Fellowship program launched in 2004 as a partnership between the U-M Life Sciences Institute and Perrigo Company, to encourage highly talented undergraduate students from across Michigan to pursue careers in the life sciences.

The fellowship is open to all undergraduates currently enrolled in any Michigan college or university. Students interested in chemical biology, biochemistry, cell biology, pharmacology or related fields, are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have excellent academic records, and priority is given to rising juniors and seniors.

Fellows will work full-time (40 hrs/week) 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.

During the summer, fellows will engage in opportunities for science communication and chalk talks, mentor lunches, workshops, dinner outings in Ann Arbor, and other activities to build a network with other summer fellows, current students and postdoctoral researchers, Perrigo alumni, and the wider University of Michigan and Life Sciences Institute communities.

At the end of the summer, fellows participate in a research symposium and present their work to the campus community, as well as create and present a poster highlighting the research conducted during the summer.
