Applications for 2014 Fleming Scholar Program due Feb. 1

Applications for OMRF’s 2014 Fleming Scholar Program are due Feb. 1.

High school seniors and college freshmen, sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply. Applicants must be at least 16 years old and Oklahoma residents at the time of high school graduation to qualify.

Students selected for this competitive internship program will be paid and, if eligible, will receive free housing.

The program is named for Nobel prize-winning scientist, Sir Alexander Fleming, who discovered penicillin and dedicated OMRF’s first building in 1949. Since the program was started in 1956, more than 500 Oklahoma students have spent a summer at OMRF as Fleming Scholars. Two current OMRF scientists, Rodger McEver, M.D., Ph.D., and Judith James, M.D., Ph.D., began their research careers in the program.
