Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

The Graeme Carnegie Fellowship is a ten-week (40/hrs week) competitive research-intensive experience in the Department of Pharmacology & Regenerative Medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago. The department consistently leads the field in funding and is home several world-class graduate programs. Awardees will have the opportunity to attend departmental seminars, presentations by guest speakers, a contemporary scientific methods course, and laboratory meetings. Admitted students are expected to prepare a research proposal, in conjunction with their faculty mentor, prior to the start of program. At the end of the program, students will present their work in a departmental seminar.

This program is designed for students interested in pursuing a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in biomedical sciences or related fields and who will have just completed their sophomore or junior year in college. As we are committed to increasing the number of students from underrepresented minorities in Ph.D. programs, those students are especially encouraged to apply.

Students will be selected for the Graeme Carnegie Fellowship based on their commitment to a research career, prior research experience, academic record, and letters of recommendation from faculty advisors/research supervisors.

STIPEND: A $4,500 stipend will be provided by the Graeme Carnegie Fellowship to cover room, board, travel, and other expenses incurred by the student during the program. Fellows are responsible for providing their own housing, though the program can help with the process.
