Applications for our Summer Studentships must include a significant microscopy component and should come from a suitable host academic on behalf of a student. The Studentship is offered on the understanding that a 500 word project report is completed by the student by the end of the period of study and submitted to the RMS. The report should be in the form of an abstract with Introduction, Materials & Methods, Results and Discussion. It should also include images/data.
Four Studentships of £2000 are offered by the Royal Microscopical Society: 2 for life sciences and 2 for physical sciences.
The person making the application must be a Member or Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society.
If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Hunt.
Applications for 2017 Summer Studentships are now open.
The deadline for applications is 24 February 2017.

Last year’s RMS studentship recipient has since been offered and accepted a PhD position in Cambridge, partly thanks to the highly successful project that they were able complete with the studentship and that played a big role in them being offered the position. This clearly demonstrates to me how much the studentship makes a difference to the career of students.
