“The SCCR fellowship enabled me to do so much more with my research than I ever thought possible. Having the ability to work full-time has allowed me to push and expand my research goals, and I hope to produce a publication and potential cancer therapy options for clinical use in the future.” -Kiara Vaden Whitley, 2017 SCCR Summer Fellow
Summer on-campus fellows gain invaluable mentored research experience as they work in research labs full-time over spring and summer terms. Experience sharpens their focus on future careers in cancer research, strengthens their applications to graduate and health professional schools, and advances their training in pursuit of careers.
Summer fellows receive a stipend of $13.50 an hour to allow for full focus on conducting research.
