Objective of the Program

The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for students enrolled in years 1 and 2 in the professional veterinary program to have a faculty-guided, positive, and rewarding research experience in the basic sciences, with the intention of increasing student awareness and excitement for the challenges of research.

Time Commitment:  Students must commit to a 12-week program and are expected to make a presentation at the College of Veterinary Medicine Research Day in early September. 

Stipend: Students will receive about $3000 for their work, paid in 3 checks scheduled over the summer. This money cannot be given in advance of the scheduled pay dates which begin in July.
