Inspire Summer Studentships – Emerging and Pandemic Infections Consortium
The Emerging and Pandemic Infections Consortium (EPIC) is strongly committed to building a diverse and inclusive infectious disease research community. We recognize that diversity strengthens the quality and impact of research by bringing multiple ideas and perspectives.
The EPIC Inspire Summer Studentships will foster inclusive excellence by providing third-year Black and Indigenous undergraduate students with opportunities to engage in infectious disease research with and receive mentorship from EPIC’s faculty members. These awards aim to support Black and Indigenous students who are interested in infectious diseases and to create a more diverse talent pool for the next generation of infectious disease research leaders. Applicants will have an opportunity to continue their studentship research as a fourth-year thesis project if both the student and supervisor are in agreement.
Applications from eligible students who are interested in infectious disease research are welcome. EPIC will help match interested students with an EPIC faculty member for the summer studentship.
Application deadline: Friday, March 1, 2024
