21 students will have the chance this summer to conduct a research internship at the Institute, for 12 or 16 weeks and will receive an undergraduate research award, a value of $ 4250 or $ 5670.
This opportunity is made possible by the 2017 IRIC Next Generation Awards and the financial contribution from a few of the IRIC’s Principal Investigators and the funds raised by the IRIC Great Challenges, a sporting and philanthropic event benefiting the Institute.
Congratulations to the winners!
