Thomas and Ronna Klein Summer Scholarship
The Thomas and Ronna Klein Summer Scholar Research Opportunity has been made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Thomas and Mrs. Ronna Klein, who made a donation to the laboratory of Dr. Megan Sykes, Columbia Center for Translational Immunology to provide a gateway opportunity into the field of translational immunology research. This scholarship is intended to provide motivated students from underrepresented groups with exposure to biomedical research and an opportunity for longer-term mentorship toward a career in this area.
The Thomas and Ronna Klein Summer Research Scholar Award provides an opportunity for one high school (18+ years old), undergraduate or post-bachelor degree student to spend the summer performing research in the Sykes lab of the Columbia Center for Translational Immunology at Columbia University. The student will receive paid training ($15/hr), access to educational meetings and seminars and will directly participate in funded translational immunology research projects at Columbia University. It is our hope that the training will inspire a long-term, continuous relationship as the student grows into their career.
Application packets must include:
- Current resume of student
- One page summary of what you hope to accomplish in the summer research time, and any pertinent information that makes you an ideal candidate for a research summer award
- Two letters of reference
