Subject: PDF Summer Student Fellowships




The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation is now accepting applications for Summer Student Fellowships. Please forward this to anyone that may be interested in applying.


PDF’s Summer Fellowship program is used to support students–from advanced undergraduates to graduate and medical students– in their pursuit of Parkinson’s-related summer research projects. Fellows work under the close supervision of a mentor who is an expert in the Parkinson’s Disease community and oversees the project. Fellowships are offered for 10 weeks of laboratory work, with an award amount of $4,000.

This award is to be used to support the student’s summer research, for example, to defray tuition costs of research credits or to supplement living/housing costs.





Undergraduate students, graduate students and medical students are all eligible for summer fellowships.  Each applicant must identify a mentor with whom he or she will conduct the proposed project. This program is open to both national and international applicants.
