Floyd Microbiology Summer Fellowship


The Floyd Microbiology Summer Fellowship is available for graduate students (PhD or MA) whose research focuses on problems in the field of microbiology.  First year Ph.D. students should not apply (your fellowship covers your summer support already), and MA students must have identified a thesis advisor to submit an application. 

Note: Students whose research deals with plant- or fungus-microbe interactions and focuses mostly on the plant/fungus side should apply for the Floyd Plant & Fungal Biology Summer Fellowship. 


To be eligible students must be making progress towards their degree and be engaged full-time in dissertation or thesis-related activities (research and/or classwork) during the summer.


Not yet determined.

(If a student receives another award–such as the Konetzka, Hudock, or another fellowship–the Floyd fellowship may be used to supplement that award to a maximum total of $3,000.)

Special Application Materials:

Submit all materials listed on the application form. 

A letter of endorsement must be submitted separately by the faculty advisor assessing student progress, and agreeing with the projected completion date.
