The HHMI International Research Opportunities for Undergraduates program provides international research opportunities for students in the labs of HHMI International Research Scholars. Trinity’s HHMI program will provide a $3,750 stipend, 1 semester hour of tuition, all travel expenses, insurance, registration, and all room expenses (food isn’t included) for up to two students.
Interested applicants should obtain a copy of the application materials by emailing Kimberly Messersmith, TU-HHMI Grant Coordinator. Completed application forms must be returned to Ms. Messersmtih by November 13, 2009.
Students selected as Trinity’s nominees to the program will be allowed to list their five top choices of international research labs. Note that students are not permitted to contact the international scholars directly. Nomination documents will be forwarded to the scholars by HHMI.
Preference will be given to students who have previously engaged in independent research, are beyond their freshman year, and are majoring in life sciences, chemistry, or physics.
