For researchers Apply for funding 2017 Summer Studentships and Fellowships Launched Animal Free Research is very pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 Summer Studentship scheme for undergraduate students and the Alan & Kathie Stross Summer Fellowship scheme. The Summer Studentship scheme provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to extend their studies during their degree and gain valuable laboratory-based research experience over the summer period. Each 8-week Studentship, consists of a student stipend of £180 per week and up to £500 for research consumables. The Alan and Kathie Stross Summer Fellowship scheme is for newly graduated students to gain further research experience for a 12-week period following the end of their degree. The Summer Fellowship consists of a student stipend of £200 per week and up to £1,000 for research consumables. If your research proposal is directed towards replacing the use of animals within your laboratory or wider field, and works towards advancing scientific and medical knowledge in a human health area, then we invite you to apply. Applications that integrate a range of technical disciplines are encouraged. Please note that we will not support or fund any Summer Schemes project that requires the use of animal-derived biomaterials. The closing date for applications is 5:00pm Friday 7th April 2017.
