Biology Fellows Program (BFP) 

The Biology Fellows Program (BFP) is a program open to all UC Berkeley students that provides financial support for students doing research, as well as seminars and professional development workshops on biological research-related topics.

BFP provides stipends for research opportunities in the biological sciences for undergraduates whose financial need would make such work difficult on an unpaid basis. The program seeks to increase the number of students from underrepresented groups and women doing research. However, all qualified undergraduates are encouraged to apply and will be considered equally.

The program also seeks to enhance interaction among the peer group of undergraduate researchers through faculty seminars, professional development workshops, by students presenting their research at the year-end Undergraduate Research Symposium.


This program is supported by the Dean of Biological Sciences.


The BFP application for the 2016-17 academic year is currently open. 

If you have limited or no research experience AND are a BSP student learn about our Program for Early Researchers
