SOT Awards

Internship Program Support

Deadline: January 8

Consistent with the SOT goal of enhancing recruitment of students into toxicology, the Faculty United for Toxicology Undergraduate Recruitment and Education (FUTURE) Committee has funding for undergraduate intern hosts to enable additional undergraduate summer internships in toxicology (assuming at least a 50% matching from the host institution or other funding sources). The intent of this program is to increase opportunities for summer research in toxicology by capitalizing on existing programs. Preference will be given to institutions demonstrating success in current summer internship programs and those recruiting from student groups typically under-represented in the sciences. Institutions will use their stated methods to select the SOT-supported interns but are encouraged to carefully consider the applications from students accepted for the SOT Undergraduate Diversity Program. SOT requires that students who receive SOT funding will do research related to toxicology or risk assessment under the mentorship of an SOT member.
