Summer Studentships 2024: Successful applicants revealed!

Six projects set to take place this summer with RMS funding support

We are pleased to announce that six students have been successful in applying for an RMS Summer Studentship to take place later this year.

The studentships are awarded each year to undergraduates undertaking projects involving a significant element of microscopy. The RMS aims to split the awards evenly between physical sciences, biological sciences and interdisciplinary projects.

Each student will receive up to £2,000 to help cover laboratory and living costs during their projects, and complete a report on their work which will be published in infocus Magazine. The students will also be asked to record a short video, briefly talking about their experience.

Many congratulations to this year's successful applicants, who are as follows:
