The Perrigo Undergraduate Summer Fellowship is open to all undergraduates currently enrolled in any Michigan college or university. Priority is given to rising juniors and seniors.

Students interested in chemical biology, biochemistry, cell biology, pharmacology or related fields, are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have excellent academic records. Some experience working in a lab is preferred.

Fellows will work full-time (40 hours / 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.)

At the end of the summer, fellows present a poster as well as a presentation of their research projects to the LSI community during the capstone Perrigo Symposium


Any U.S. citizen or resident alien (green card) who is an undergraduate student at any Michigan college or university at the time of the fellowship is welcome to apply. International students at Michigan colleges or universities should check with the international center at their home institution to ensure that their visa will allow participation.

An excellent academic record and participation in a wide range of campus activities are highly regarded, but are not the sole criteria for the selection process.


A $4,000 stipend will be awarded to each fellow. In addition an $1,800 allowance is given for housing once the program begins.
