Amherst College Summer Science Research Fellowship Program

This program was originally created by The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to "strengthen the national quality of science education for students in the formative stages of their educational careers".  At Amherst the summer science research fellowship program has been expanded to include support from the HHMI, the George Norman Albree Trust, endowed Amherst College funds, the Dean of Faculty’s Office, and private donors in order to sponsor several summer research fellowships for Amherst first-year and second-year students contemplating careers in a broader range of science fields.  Each fellow works with a faculty member in an immersive laboratory research project as part of one of several on-campus collaborative research groups. The fellowship is an ideal experience for students considering whether a career in the science or medical research fields is ideal for them.
