Summer Scholar Research Awards

The NFXF Summer Scholars program is now open for applications for Summer 2021

The National Fragile X Foundation (NFXF) will fund one or more summer student’s research at $2,500 each. The work can be in the area of Fragile X syndrome (FXS), Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS), or Fragile X-associated primary ovarian syndrome (FXPOI).

This award is meant to introduce undergraduate students or students in professional training programs in the Fragile X field by providing funding for a summer project. Projects can be new or existing. If the student will be supporting an existing project, please explain the specific use of the $2,500. The intention of the Summer Scholars Research Awards is to add to the body of knowledge around Fragile X in a meaningful way while providing a distinct training experience.

Submit applications to the NFXF by completing the below form by Friday, April 16th. Email Hilary Rosselot at with questions.

Notification of awards will be made the week of May 10, 2021.
