JOHNSON CANCER RESEARCH CENTER INVITES APPLICATIONS FOR UNDERGRADUATE CANCER RESEARCH AWARDS
MANHATTAN -- The Terry C. Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research at Kansas State University is now accepting applications for its 2010-2011 undergraduate student cancer research awards.
The center annually grants up to 50 undergraduate cancer research awards to encourage and support undergraduate participation in cancer-related laboratory research. Winning students conduct research projects during the spring semester and receive $1,000 awards at the end of the semester. Faculty mentors also receive $1,000 per student to help cover research expenses.
Interested students choose a cancer center-affiliated faculty researcher to serve as a mentor. The two work together to design and propose a research project that fits into the mentor's research program, and the mentor submits the application. The award application and a list of affiliated faculty researchers are available at http://cancer.k-state.edu/education/.
The deadline for submission is Oct. 1.
The mission of the center is to further the understanding of cancers by funding basic cancer research, and supporting higher education, training and public outreach. This and all of the center's programs are made possible through private donations.
