Now Accepting Applications for Summer Scholar Research Awards

Summer Research Grants Available for Students Researching Fragile X

Deadline March 12, 2018

Each year, the National Fragile X Foundation funds one or more summer student’s research at $2500 each through the NFXF Summer Scholar Research Awards (formerly NFXF Summer Student Fellowships). The student’s work can be in the area of Fragile X syndrome (FXS), Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) or Fragile X-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (FXPOI).

This award is meant to introduce undergraduate students or students in professional training programs to research in the Fragile X field by providing funding for a summer project. It is not meant to supplement funds for PhD candidates or post-doctoral fellows working on research related to Fragile X.

Applications should be submitted to the NFXF – jayne@fragilex.org by March 12, 2018.

Notification of awards will be made by the end of April 2018.
