The Hughes Scholars program supports active research and outreach by undergraduate students in areas related to biomedical/bioscience research. Funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the program seeks Montana State University students who are considering careers in biomedical/bioscience research or a medical/health field, and who are dedicated, driven, and innovative.
Applications for the 2014/15 program are now being accepted
The successful Hughes Scholar understands the critical nature of a well-rounded education, strong communication skills, and a commitment to providing science learning opportunities to others. Key to the Hughes Scholars fellowships is participation in a significant and meaningful project to reach out to populations through discovery-based and/or research-relevant science. This program differs from others at MSU in that supported projects have a clear methodology for imparting science information to a specific audience, and in a way that encourages young learners or other populations to be excited and intrigued by science.
