AllerGen’s Undergraduate Summer Studentships provide capacity-building opportunities to undergraduate students specializing in biomedical, health, social and/or natural science and engineering studies to participate in research related to allergy, asthma and related immune and/or inflammatory processes and diseases.
The Summer Studentships aim to foster interest in allergic and related disease research among undergraduate students, leading to advanced studies and potentially a career in related research and/or clinical practice.
Ten awards of $3,500 are issued annually, matched 1:1 with non-AllerGen partnered funding for a total award value of $70,000.
