Apply Today: Summer 2021 Student Fellowship Awards

David Braley Centre for Antibiotic Discovery Student Fellowships

To encourage interest in antimicrobial discovery research, the David Braley Centre for Antibiotic Discovery will provide five $4,000 awards to undergraduate students working in IIDR member labs during their summer practicum from May–August, 2021.

How to Apply:

The following documents must be submitted as a single PDF to iidr@mcmaster.ca by Friday, March 5, 2021:

  • A one-page outline on how your research project aligns with the topic of antibiotic discovery or the mitigation of antibiotic resistance. This document must be signed by your sponsoring principal investigator(s)
  • A copy of your resume or CV
  • A copy of your unofficial transcript

Selected applicants will be announced in April. Please note that this award cannot be held with other summer awards. For further information, please contact Dr. Lori Burrows at lori.burrows@mcmaster.ca.

Please note: If your project does NOT address antibiotic discovery or antibiotic resistance, you should apply for the IIDR summer fellowship instead. Also, please ensure that you only apply for ONE of the two awards (IIDR or DBCAD) — not both.
