Summer Scholar Research Awards

Due to the COVID-19 response, we are not offering the Summer Scholars for 2020.

The National Fragile X Foundation fund one or more summer student’s research at $2,500 each. 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.
