The URSO Student Fellowship supports students conducting summer research projects focused on PSP, CBD, and related diseases. This program is supported by the Paul and Ruth Urso Memorial Research Fund. The goal of this fellowship program is to encourage students at all post-secondary levels to pursue research in this field in the hope of making PSP or CBD a long-term area of research interest. Projects may be in basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological aspects of PSP and CBD.
Undergraduate, graduate, and medical students are eligible – as well as medical residents and clinical fellows. PhD students and postdoctoral fellows are not eligible for this program. The research must be performed under the supervision of a faculty mentor with expertise in the field. The maximum award is $3,000. Funds may be budgeted to cover the applicant’s stipend and research related expenses. Grantees will present the results of their research at the Annual CurePSP Research Symposium in the fall (typically mid-November) following their summer project. CurePSP will provide awardees travel and lodging expenses for the Symposium.
Deadline: Jan. 31, 2023
