Undergraduate and Graduate Fellowship Opportunities
Minority Outreach Fellowships
Porter Physiology Development Fellowships
Application deadline: January 15, 2017
The goal of the Porter Physiology Development Program is to encourage diversity among students pursuing full-time studies toward the PhD in the physiological sciences and to encourage their participation in the Society.
The Porter program provides a full-time graduate fellowship ($28,300 during the academic year) to students in programs leading to the PhD in the physiological sciences at U.S. institutions. The program is open to underrepresented racial and ethnic minority applicants who are citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories and student members of the Society.
Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowships
Application deadline: February 1, 2017
APS is proud to offer four programs that allow undergraduate students to participate in research during the summer. Recipients spend an average of 10 weeks in the laboratory of an established scientist and APS member. Each program recruits undergraduate students nationwide, two internationally. Two targeted programs are open to students from disadvantaged backgrounds, from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, and students with disabilities. Each Fellow receives a stipend plus additional funds for travel to present his or her research at a scientific meeting. Research hosts receive funds for student lab supplies.
