Undergraduate Summer Research Program

The ASPET Institutional Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship and the Charles Ross Summer Fellowship for Underrepresented Students are designed for undergraduate students seeking additional research experience outside of their home institutions. Current U-M students are also eligible to apply.

During a summer at Michigan Pharmacology, students will conduct an intensive research project with faculty and graduate students. Throughout the summer, all students will engage in a series of academic, professional, and personal development seminars. At the end of the 8-week project, students will present their research to the department.

The summer programs goals are to:

  • Introduce students to and prepare them for advanced studies in a Ph.D. program
  • Build professional and personal networks to support student’s interest in joining the academic community
  • Encourage students to apply to a Ph.D. program at U-M


The application deadline for summer 2018 has past and is now closed.
