Purpose: to support vacation research by undergraduate geneticists.
Grants are available to provide financial support for undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience in any area of genetics by carrying out a research project over the long vacation, usually prior to their final year.
Applications must be made by Principal Investigators (PI) at Universities or Research Institutes. The application must be for a named student and is not transferable. Studentships will only be awarded to students who have yet to complete their first degree i.e. those who will still be undergraduates during the long vacation when the studentship is undertaken.
Both the PI and the student involved must be members of the Genetics Society There are no restrictions concerning the nationality of the student, and the student does not have to attend a UK university.
