Fox Chase Cancer Center has a long history of mentoring undergraduates using summer research projects. Since the early 1990's, Eileen Jaffe has had oversight for a competitive undergraduate summer research fellowship program which has funded between 12 and 15 Fellows per summer. Although FCCC is currently seeking sponsorship for this very effective program, there is a continuing institutional commitment. The current stipend is set at $3,500 for ten weeks.
- Eligible nominees must be UNDERGRADUATES. Entering freshman can compete. Spring graduates who will be matriculating into graduate or medical school in the fall are also eligible.
- Eligible nominees must be available for 10 full weeks. These do not have to be consecutive weeks.
- Previous FCCC Undergraduate Summer Fellows are not eligible to be nominated for a second year of support from this program.
Please see the website for detailed instructions including the nominations process.
