Biology Fellows Program

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, and by students organizing and putting on an Undergraduate Research Symposium where they will also present their research.

This program is supported by the Dean of Biological Sciences, Dean G. Steven Martin.


We regret to inform that BSP is not be able to offer paid undergraduate research opportunities for Summer 2016 due to the lack of funding. Providing paid research opportunities remains a high priority for BSP and we are working hard to find funds to reinstate them in the near future.

We will update this message as we find out more information about future opportunities.
