Student Opportunities

Join us this summer @ Virginia Tech!

Funded by an NIH R25 Research Education Grant, and under the umbrella of the Center for Transformative Research on Health Behaviors, the Translational Obesity Undergraduate Research Scholars (TOUR-Scholars) Program is a research-intensive summer experience which prepares students for graduate and medical education in translational obesity research.

TOUR-Scholars will be matched with a faculty mentor, working across the obesity translational spectrum. Ten students will be chosen to participate. Each student will receive a $5,250 stipend.

Applications due January 11, 2019
