Hard to believe, but there have been 25 years of Howard Hughes Research Fellows Programs, at Duke, 576 Fellows in total. What was supposed to be a ‘seed’ grant to Trinity College was renewed for 6 cycles as the premier undergraduate summer research program at Duke.
While HHMI still funds undergraduate-education projects at Duke, the summer program for rising sophomores is now growing with full support from Trinity College. I’m looking forward to our 26th year, under the new name – The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellows (BSURF).
See you in June!
