The Endocrine Society offers Summer Research Fellowships to encourage promising undergraduate students, medical students, and first year graduate school students to pursue careers in endocrinology. The Society provides a stipend to each award recipient to participate in research projects under the guidance of a Society member for 8 to 12 weeks during the summer.
After the summer fellowship, recipients are invited to attend ENDO, the Society's Annual Meeting & Expo and will receive complimentary registration, airfare and lodging, and per diem for the duration of the meeting. Previous recipients of the Summer Research Fellowship can apply for the Excellence in Research award to continue their research training and career development.
