Donald A. King HDSA Summer Research Fellowship

There is a continual and important need to continue to train the next-generation of scientists and physicians with research expertise in neurodegenerative disorders, especially Huntington’s disease. The purpose of the Donald A. King Summer Research Fellowships program is two-fold: first, to attract the brightest young scientists into the field of Huntington’s disease research and secondly, to facilitate meaningful HD research to clarify the biological mechanisms underlying HD pathology.

$4,000, as stipend for a student(s) who completes a 10-week summer fellowship and submits to HDSA a report of their activities and findings. In addition, up to $500 is available for the host university/lab/center to help defray the costs associated with the research.

  1. Application is open to matriculated undergraduate life sciences students, pre-medical students, and first-year medical students who are currently attending accredited institutions in the United States. Applications must be accompanied by a letter of support from the mentor who oversees the laboratory where the research will be performed.
  2. Each student applying for a fellowship must complete an application form outlining their project, and can only submit the form with an endorsement from a faculty mentor who will supervise the student
