Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior Description:
The APS IOSP program is designed to help undergraduate students nationwide from disadvantaged backgrounds, individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, and individuals with disabilities to work with APS member researchers in the fields of comparative and evolutionary physiology.
IOSP Fellows complete not only 10 weeks of a summer research experience and professional development activities on their campus, but also interactive, online activities with students nationwide, exploring career options, responsible conduct of research, structuring research studies, developing abstracts, and presenting research posters.
Students will also present at APS conferences where they are active participants in a professional community and become active proponents for IOS research via APS' social media outlets (blog, Facebook) and K-12 outreach program, Physiology Understanding Week (PhUn Week). The program takes students beyond a summer experience to become involved members of the IOS scientific community.
All APS IOSP Fellows receive student membership in the APS.
Students who complete the first year of the IOSP program can apply for a second year of funding.
APS was awarded a 5-year broadening participation grant by NSF/IOS in 2012.Participating Institution(s):(Click an institution to see all programs it hosts)Program Materials:This Program can be Described by:
