Summer Fellowship Program

GCB Summer Fellowship Program:
Duke Classes of 2017 and 2018

2015 Program Dates: May 18, 2015 – July 24, 2015

Announcing our annual 10-week Interdisciplinary Genome Sciences Summer Fellowship Program for undergraduates!

This program is intended for rising sophomores and juniors, to enable further development of knowledge and research skills through faculty-mentored research projects. Join the more than 100 students who have spent their summers with us, many of whom have continued participating in research and have gone on to pursue further education and training in science and research.

Program Overview and Eligibility

Research opportunities in the GCB program include a wide range of topics in genomic and computational biology. For details, see faculty webpages at genome.duke.edu. The GCB Summer Fellowship Program is open to Duke students in the Classes of 2017 and 2018 who have successfully completed (or are currently enrolled in) at least one biological sciences course. The GCB program is designed for rising sophomores and juniors -- even those with no prior research experience -- to work with them as they develop a passion for research, engage in ongoing research projects and gain an appreciation for the value of open-ended, student-initiated research.

We especially encourage women and individuals from underrepresented minority groups to apply. Students will be selected for the program based on their academic record, application responses, and letters of recommendation.

Online Application

The 2015 Summer Fellowship Program online application is now available. The GCB Summer Fellowship Program requires full-time participation, and students selected for the program will not be able to take summer session courses or engage in other employment during the 10-week program.
