The Armenise-Harvard Foundation offers to Italian University students the unique opportunity to apply for their Summer Fellowship Program and spend two months, July and August, in a laboratory of the Harvard Medical School or affiliated hospital in Boston.
In addition to the research activity, selected students will also attend career development seminars aimed at reinforcing their transferable skills (e.g. cv drafting, job applications, career planning within and outside academia), where they will meet Italian scientists and professors in Boston, who will discuss their education and career choices.
This opportunity is reserved to outstanding Italian students enrolled in the 4th or 5th year of a “Laurea Magistrale” focusing on Biomedical research.
Successful applicants will be awarded a fellowship for 2.700 Euros to contribute to the expenses for the round-trip flight to Boston, accommodation during the fellowship, health insurance and visa costs.  
Thanks to an agreement established between Department CIBIO and the Armenise-Harvard Foundation, Department CIBIO will contribute to the 2019 edition of the program with two additional fellowships reserved only to Italian students enrolled in the Department CIBIO Master Programs in Cellular and Molecular Biotechnology and in Quantitative and Computational Biology.

The Call for the 2019 Summer Fellowship is now open in the Armenise-Harvard official website and will close on December 1st.
