It is time to announce that the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) is now accepting applications for the 2017 Donald A. King Summer Research Fellowship. The goals of the program are to introduce and attract the brightest young scientists into the field of Huntington’s disease (HD) research, while also helping to facilitate important research that may help us better understand HD.

The 10 week summer program is open to matriculated undergraduate life science students, pre-medical students and first-year medical students who are currently attending accredited institutions in the United States.  Students awarded these fellowships must work under the direction of an established HD researcher/faculty member.  The fellowship will provide funds, in the amount of $4,000, as stipend for a student(s) who completes a 10-week summer fellowship and submits to HDSA a report of their activities and findings.  In addition, up to $500 is available for the host university/lab/center to help defray the costs associated with the research.  Awards will be paid by HDSA directly to the student in two equal installments:  the first (75%) payment shall be made upon written acceptance of the award; the second (25%) installment shall be made upon successful completion and fulfillment of the terms and conditions of the award.   The deadline for applications is Friday, March 3rd, 2017 at 5pm EDT.
