Scholarship Description

This is a program providing 10 weeks of summer funding for matriculated undergraduate students in the US to work in a laboratory studying Huntington’s disease. Also eligible are first-year medical students in the summer before or after their first year of med school. We have also been flexible in the past with applications from students who are about to matriculate (before entering Freshman year of undergraduate) and who have recently graduated (right after Senior year of undergraduate).

The Fellowship sponsors college students to pursue an HD research project that can be conducted over a 10-week period, between May and September. Fellowship recipients, working under the supervision of senior HD scientists, will undertake a project that is focused and achievable in a short timeframe, yet helpful in guiding future HD research. Applications are accepted between December and March each year.

The Donald A. King Summer Fellowship will provide funds, in the amount of $4,000, as stipend for a student(s) who completes a 10-week summer fellowship and submits to HDSA a report of their activities and findings. In addition, up to $500 is available for the host university/lab/center to help defray the costs associated with the research.
