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.

“My AllerGen Summer Studentship helped me to achieve a better understanding of the rigorous process of scientific enquiry and confirmed my commitment to pursue a career as a clinician-scientist.”
