Student Fellowships

Urso Summer Student Program in PSP Research

The Urso Summer Student Program in PSP Research will support students conducting summer research projects focused on progressive supranuclear palsy. This program seeks to encourage students at all post-secondary levels to pursue research in this field in the hope of making PSP a long-term area of research interest. Projects may be in basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological aspects of PSP.

Undergraduate, graduate and medical students are eligible - residents, clinical fellows and postdoctoral fellows are not. The research must be performed under the supervision of a faculty mentor with expertise in the field. The maximum award is $3,000. Funds may be budgeted to cover the applicant’s stipend and research related expenses. Awardees will present the results of their research at the Annual CurePSP Research Symposium in the Fall (typically mid-November) following their summer project. CurePSP will provide awardees travel and lodging expenses for the Symposium.
