2008 Frontiers in Physiology Fellowship: $8500 Summer Research Opportunity


Science teachers of grades 6-12 are invited to apply for this year-long immersion in the world of cutting-edge physiology research sponsored by the American Physiological Society (APS). Partnered with a local APS member scientist, fellows do hands-on research for 7-8 weeks during the summer, as well as explore and practice teaching methods that integrate inquiry, equity and the Internet into their classrooms. The fellowship concludes with a trip to a scientific conference in 2009 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Awardees receive a stipend of up to $8500 over the fellowship year that includes travel and a mini-grant for classroom materials. Applications are due no later than January 10, 2008.

Please pass this opportunity along to your colleagues!
