Biology Fellows Program
Applications for Summer 2013 are due by March 31 at 11:59 p.m.
The Biology Fellows Program (BFP) is a semester-long 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 group of undergraduate researchers through faculty seminars, professional development workshops and an Undergraduate Research Symposium organized and executed by the students where they will also present their research.
This program is supported in part from a grant to U.C. Berkeley from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Precollege and Undergraduate Science Education Program and through the generous support of a U.C. Berkeley Alumna whose own undergraduate education was pivotal to her professional development.
The 2013 Summer Program is from May 28 until August 2.
Before completing the online application, please review the Application Information sheet (PDF).
