We offer a strong mentored summer research program at the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine

The program derives its strength and diversity through dedication of outstanding mentors and availability of various funding sources, including a T-35 and an R-25 award from the National Institutes of Health and a grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Inc., for the BI Veterinary Scholars. In addition, we are proud to have several endowed fellowships, including the Witter Fellowship, Steven Arnoczky Fellowship, and the Feline Health and Well-being Center Fellowship, each supporting one or more veterinary scholars every year, along with additional support from the Dean's Office at CVM as well as the Graduate School at MSU.

Application Process: Students, including those at MSU or at any institution, can apply to all summer research opportunities with a single application form that can be completed online through this site: https://wapp.cvm.msu.edu/SummerResearch/Account/Login

Students should review the faculty members (PIs) and potential projects at https://wapp.cvm.msu.edu/researchprojects, and identify an area of emphasis that interests them and contact PIs before applying. Applicants are advised to identify the PI and the project of interest in their application.


The deadline for receipt of applications is Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at 11:59:59 pm Eastern Time.

The summer research program will take place May 22 – Aug 5, 2023.
