Sullivan Scholarship for Expanding Biological Horizons
(Submission Deadline February 17, 2017)
As the result of a generous bequest from the late Professor of Biology, Dr. Robert L. Sullivan, the Department of Biology is able to offer the Sullivan Scholarship program. Undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing biological studies beyond the classroom at Wake Forest may apply for funds to support these and similar activities:
- Summer experiences at a research laboratory or field station.
- Independent biological studies projects away from Winston-Salem in laboratories or the field.
- Participating in organized field trips during the summer under the direction of a faculty member.
In recent years, students have taken summer courses in Jamaica, Peru, Australia, Kenya, and the Turks & Caicos islands. They have pursued research experiences in the Arizona-Sonora Desert, the Galapagos Islands, Bolivia, Spain, Australia, and at the University of Cape Town. Others have had internships in International Health with the World Bank in London, worked with the Nature Conservancy, and participated in workshops on Chagas Disease in Ecuador.
