We are pleased to announce the awardees of the September round of Biochemical Society Summer Vacation Studentship grants. Grants are available for stipends of £200 per week for 6-8 weeks, to support an undergraduate student to carry out a summer lab placement.


The Summer Vacation Studentship scheme is an important part of the Society’s commitment to supporting the next generation of biochemists and continues to be extremely popular, with 135 applications received in 2016. We are delighted to have been able to fund 42 of these, and information about the winners and their project titles can be found here. We will release updates from our students throughout their placements in summer 2016 here.


The 2017 round of Summer Vacation Studentship grants will open for applications on 23 September 2016 and close on 24 February 2017. To find out more, including how to apply, click here.
