DART Summer Research Fellowship Program

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) DART program offers a summer research fellowship for students interested in learning more about research. The goal of the DART Summer Fellowship Program is to introduce promising students to research, both basic science and clinical in nature, and afford them the opportunity to work closely with a research mentor and his/her investigative team.

The program is open to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. During the fellowship, students spend 10 weeks working full-time (40 hours per week) in their research mentor’s lab. Students can gain experience collecting data, running analyses, training through weekly didactic seminars, scientific writing, and presenting their work at the annual Summer Research Day.

Eligibility: Medical, Graduate, & Undergraduate Students
Stipend: $4,000
Duration: 10 weeks starting May 26, 2020 through July 31, 2020


Application Procedure

Spots are limited and applications are competitive. Students that are accepted into the summer program will be matched with a faculty mentor based on research interests. Thus, you do not need to identify a mentor before you apply to the DART summer program. If your application is accepted, we will identify a mentor for you, and will provide you with your mentor's name and contact information so that you may contact him or her and begin preparing for the summer program.

We will be accepting applications to the 2021 DART Summer Research Fellowship beginning November 1, 2020.
