Congratulations to our four NFXF Summer Scholars!

Each year, the National Fragile X Foundation funds one or more summer student research fellowships at $2500 each through the NFXF Summer Fellowship Research Fund. 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. We understand the importance of investing in the future of Fragile X, and this award is part of our commitment to fostering the researchers of tomorrow.

The future of Fragile X research depends on inspiring and encouraging new generations of researchers to push Fragile X forward. That’s why we started the Summer Student Fellowship, which is awarded to a selected group of studies from young researchers. Today, we’re proud to announce the recipients for this year’s awards, as well as the results and summaries of last year’s studies.
