High School Science Fellowships At Williams College

12:00AM / Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Williamstown - For the 17th summer, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute will support four fellowships in the biological sciences for current high school juniors.

The fellowships carry a stipend of $1,200.

The recipients will participate in ongoing research projects of Williams College faculty during the month of July. The participating laboratories encompass a number of disciplines in the biological sciences.

The program seeks students motivated to engage in hands-on research both collaboratively and individually with faculty members, college students, and peers. An eagerness to learn, a willingness to work hard and creatively, and a demonstrated ability to work well with adults and peers are important attributes of successful applicants.

Students will be chosen based on their application letters and on the quality of their recommendations by high-school teachers. Performance in high school courses will also be considered.

All application materials must be received on or before Thursday, April 12, 2007.

Students wishing to apply should: send a letter of interest that clearly describes why they would benefit from and enjoy participating in hands-on, investigative research, arrange for a copy of their high school transcript to be forwarded, and arrange for two letters of recommendation from high school science teacher(s) and/or guidance counselor(s).

The letters should be sent to Dr. Wendy E. Raymond, Department of Biology, 226 Bronfman Science Center, Williams College, Williamstown, MA 01267. Please include your home address, phone number, email address, and school name on your letter of interest.
