BMB Departmental Scholarships and University Awards
The BMB department is endowed with a number of scholarships and awards specific to BMB, MICRB, or BIOTC majors. These awards are divided into two categories, academic, and summer research awards. Students are selected for all awards by a departmental scholarship committee.
Academic Awards: There is no application process, and instead, the department committee reviews all students who qualify for the various awards. Award recipients are generally selected at the end of each spring semester and are notified of their selection sometime during the summer months.
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF): Students apply at the beginning of the spring semester and are notified by early April. Application include a research proposal and a letter of support from the proposed research mentor.
