Spring 2013 | Biology Fellows Program

Biology Fellows Program: online applications are available now!

The deadline for online applications to the Biology Fellows Program (BFP) for Spring 2013 Research is November 9th at 12 pm (noon).

BFP provides financial support ($1700) for students to do research in the biological sciences for those whose financial need makes such work difficult on an unpaid basis. Students also participate in seminars and professional development workshops on biological research related topics, as well as a student-run research symposium in May 2013. BFP scholars work 10 hours/week during the Spring semester. The program seeks to increase the number of students from underrepresented groups and women doing research. However, all qualified U.C. Berkeley undergraduates are encouraged to apply and will be considered equally. Visit for the application and more details about BFP. For additional questions, check out our FAQ section on the website

BFP is supported in part from a grant to U.C. Berkeley from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Precollege and Undergraduate Science Education Program and through the generous support of a U.C. Berkeley Alumna.
