Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program
The goal in offering this fellowship is to give talented undergraduate students the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of intensive, hypothesis-drive laboratory research. This experience should help students make well informed decisions about future career plans. Previous research experience is not required. UAB especially welcomes applications from students who are interested in research as a potential career, including students interested in PhD and MD/PhD programs. SIBS accepts fifteen students per summer into this program. Applicants to SIBS are expected to have completed at least their sophomore year of undergraduate coursework. They anticipate that successful candidates will typically demonstrate grade point averages of 3.0 (“B”) or higher, especially in science, math, and related areas.
The program runs for eight weeks. Students will receive stipends and free on-campus housing but will be responsible for their own meals, travel to and from Birmingham, and other expenses.
