For High School Students & Undergraduate Students
Aspirnaut Summer Research Internship Program
This internship program is an opportunity for high school students from under-resourced communities to immerse themselves in a hands-on research experience. For students driven by a curiosity about the life sciences, we provide an ideal six-week exposure in the exciting world of scientific research.
For Undergraduate Students
Perrigo Undergraduate Summer Fellowship
Each year, undergraduate students from across Michigan are invited to apply to spend 10 weeks working with mentors in our state-of-the-art laboratories, getting hands-on immersive experience in basic science research. Fellows receive a stipend and housing support.
The Rosen Fellows program provides need-based support to undergraduate students working in LSI labs, with a preference for students placed through the U-M Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). Support is available during the academic year and over the summer.
Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program
The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) creates research partnerships between undergraduate students and University of Michigan researchers. All schools and colleges are active participants in UROP, which provides a wealth of interesting research topics for program participants. LSI faculty frequently take UROP students.
For Graduate Students
Program in Biomedical Sciences
The U-M Program in Biomedical Sciences is designed to offer students maximum flexibility, with the opportunity to rotate with more than 500 faculty — including faculty at the LSI. At the end of the first year, PIBS students choose a permanent program and will continue to be funded through defense and graduation.
Program in Chemical Biology
The U-M Program in Chemical Biology is an interdepartmental degree program through the Rackham Graduate School. It offers a doctoral program in Chemical Biology and a master's program in Cancer Chemical Biology. The program is administrated by the LSI and directed by LSI faculty member Anna Mapp.
For Graduate Students & Postdoctoral Fellows
CHEAR-LSI Child Health Policy Scholars
The CHEAR-LSI Child Health Policy Scholars fellowship program is designed to provide training and research experience in methods and applications of child health policy research for pre- and post-doctoral students/fellows who are currently enrolled in a biomedical sciences training program. The primary aim is to enhance the scholar's current training by providing both the new skills and the perspectives which are necessary for those who aim to lead research and policy in the dynamic U.S. health care environment.
David and Michelle Kroin Family Scholarship Fund
The David and Michelle Kroin Family Scholarship Fund was created to enrich the LSI experience for young scientists. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows may apply to attend one scientific conference each year. Funds may be used to cover meeting registration and travel expenses up to $1,000.
Modeled after the successful MCubed program for U-M faculty, LSI Cubed promotes cross-lab interaction and collaboration by funding “cubes” of two to three graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows from at least two LSI labs.
Each year, the LSI will fund several projects at up to $10,000 each, covering the costs of supplies and equipment. A letter of support from a faculty mentor is required for each proposal.
For Postdoctoral Fellows
Michigan Life Sciences Fellows
The Michigan Life Sciences Fellows program comprises a unique, multidisciplinary community of scholars, and provides mentorship focused on nurturing and launching truly innovative scientists into groundbreaking careers. It's a partnership between the LSI, Medical School, College of Pharmacy and College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. It offers a generous stipend, strong mentorship and skill-building to prepare researchers for independent careers.
David and Meredith Kaplan Michigan-Israel Visiting Scholars
LSA Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship
The LSI is a participant in the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts Collegiate Postdoctoral Fellowship. The program is a major initiative aimed at promoting an inclusive scholarly environment, recruiting and retaining exceptional early career scholars, and supporting outstanding scholars committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive intellectual community. The program is administered by the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan.
Donors who are passionate about science, and interested in helping future generations of scientists can make a difference through their support of these and other educational programs.
