ENGAGE (Undergraduates & Medical Students)

ENGAGE Summer Research Program

The purpose of NCRM's ENGAGE summer training program is to promote and support undergraduates and local medical students interested in stem cells and regenerative medicine research.  

Applicant Eligibility

Any undergraduate student enrolled in an accredited college or university during the fall and spring semester prior to the distribution of the award is eligible to apply for summer funding.  In addition, local medical students enrolled at Case Western Reserve University-School of Medicine and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at CWRU are encouraged to apply for summer funding. 

Award Description

‌Students may apply for funding to support research and creative projects. Funds are used to cover stipend and project materials. Funds ($500.00) for project materials will go directly to the project mentor. 

While students may apply for funding for different projects, students may not accept funding for two different projects (that is, for example, students may not be part of the SPUR program and receive ENGAGE funding for a separate project). Those accepted into more than one project program must choose which program to participate in during the summer.
