Applications Now Open For The 2024 CVRC Undergraduate Summer Fellowship

Sponsored by the UW-Madison Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC), this program requires mentors to be CVRC members who are experts in a cardiovascular field and have a demonstrated interest in mentoring successful scientists. Collaboratively, we will provide a 10-week training experience for undergraduate trainees in laboratories that address diseases including cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure, myocardial regeneration, peripheral vascular disease, valvular disease, among others.

  • Stipend $6,000
  • Program runs June 2024 – August 2024
  • Travel funds will be provided to participate in the AHA Conference taking place in Chicago this summer. Travel will be coordinated through the CVRC.

Interested students should apply using the following link by April 12, 2024

A Selection Committee will review each application and successful applicants will be paired with a Sponsor. An email will follow with an acceptance form that requires the trainee’s signature.

We will start the 10-week training with an orientation in June 2024.  The purpose is to provide an opportunity for student trainees to meet program faculty. Laboratory safety, work ethic, and training expectations will be discussed.

On the last day of the training period, we will celebrate trainees’ completion of the program with a “mini symposium” in August 2024. All student trainees, their sponsors, and the graduate students and/or postdocs who mentored student trainees will gather to recognize trainees’ achievement through their presentations.
