Department of Biology Students Receive Summer Scholar Awards
Congratulations to three University of Iowa undergraduate students - Daniel Fu, Arshaq Saleem, and Kartik Sivakumar - who are the recipients of the 2021 Iowa Neuroscience Institute (INI) Summer Scholar Awards! The INI Summer Scholar Program supports Iowa undergraduates planning to pursue research during the summer in the lab of an INI faculty member. As INI Summer Scholars, the students receive a stipend of $5,000 and have the opportunity to attend a summer undergraduate seminar series and a variety of informal events. The INI Summer Scholar application process is highly competitive. Fu, Saleem, and Sivakumar stood out for the quality of their research plan, mentor endorsement, and academic performance.
Fu is majoring in Biomedical Sciences while Saleem and Sivakumar are Neuroscience majors at the University of Iowa.
