Summer Studentships now available for 2020!
£2,000 awards available for students carrying out summer projects
Applications for the RMS’s fantastic Summer Studentship scheme are now being invited.
Up to six studentships of £2,000 are offered every year, split evenly between physical sciences, biological sciences and interdisciplinary projects.
Applications for our Summer Studentships must include a significant microscopy component and should be submitted by a suitable host academic on behalf of a student.The deadline for applications will be the end of February.
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 and Methods, Results and Discussion. It should also include images/data.
Awards will be made to students at the end of their second year of study for a three-year degree, or at the end of their second or third years for four-year degree courses. Master’s students are not eligible. £1500 should be allocated by the supervisor to the student as a bursary to cover living expenses and £500 can be used to cover experimental and laboratory expenses.
The person making the application must be a Member or Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society.
