Summer Fellowship for MCB Majors, Class of ’23

The Judith A. and David C. Kelly Summer MCB Research Fellowship program will support three rising senior MCB majors in their research activities in an MCB Faculty laboratory during the summer of 2022. These three fellowships, funded jointly by the Kellys and MCB, in the amount of $8,000 each, are intended to support students with demonstrated financial need who are MCB majors in good standing, and who have career goals aligned with the major.  Students interested in applying for this program will submit to the department an application consisting of four elements:

(1) a simple statement indicating that they receive financial aid from UCONN

(2) a current UCONN transcript indicating GPA and major

(3) a statement of professional goals

(4) a letter of recommendation from the MCB faculty member who would serve as research mentor for the fellowship recipient during the coming summer.

Please note that students are ineligible for this award if receiving another, concurrent award (e.g., SURF). The deadline for applications is April 15, 2021. Applications should be sent by email to
