The mission of our training program in molecular biophysics is to enable students of the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences from colleges with limited research opportunities to address important problems in biology. The summer undergraduate program offers cross-disciplinary research experience in leading laboratories that apply the intellectual, experimental, or theoretical tools of those sciences to biological questions.

The program is open to undergraduates who are in their freshman or sophomore years of study in chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics, and who are in good standing in their home institutions. Competitive applicants should have a good GPA, especially in the field of their major. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The program does not accept students from Princeton University. We welcome applications of students who are from groups that are historically underrepresented in graduate education or STEM employment. Students from community colleges are especially encouraged to apply.

The program provides a stipend of $550 weekly, housing, and travel to and from Princeton from your home or school location plus (for students in the domestic program only, not overseas) $100 weekly food allowance. Housing is provided on campus in quarters with shared cooking facilities. Students have free access to the University’s considerable library and computing resources, and are eligible to use the campus gymnasium facilities at cost.
