The University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center offers a summer fellowship program to support undergraduate students who are interested in cardiovascular research. Any student who is currently enrolled at any degree granting University or College is eligible to apply, with preference given to those students interested in a career in research.

Each student will be matched, based on their interests, to a laboratory that is led by a faculty member of the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center. This collection of laboratories is involved in nationally recognized research, in topics such as atherosclerosis, genetic cardiomyopathies, blood clotting disorders, cardiac arrhythmias, vascular biology and heart failure.

There will be a research forum at the end of the summer in which fellows will present their work, as well as opportunities to attend research seminars throughout the summer.


The stipend will be $4,000 for ten weeks of full-time work.


Any student that is currently enrolled in a degree granting college or university is eligible. Applicants should have excellent academic records. Preference will be given to students with strong academic performance in science/math courses and relevant laboratory experience.
