We are offering two fellowship programs (sponsored by either NINDS or NSF) that offer a substantial stipend, as well as on-campus housing and a supplement for lab supplies.

•Participate in investigations of how the nervous system develops, functions and repairs itself after injury.

•Get hands-on training in molecular, cellular, anatomical, physiological approaches.

•Gain valuable experience before you enter graduate school.

The program supported by NSF is focused on training you to investigate the basic science of neural function and behavior and provides a stipend of $5000. All faculty members participating in our Neuroscience Graduate Program are eligible to serve as your mentors. This program supports up to eight fellows per year and is for undergraduates planning to go to graduate school.

The program supported by NINDS is focused on training you to investigate the neuroscience of neurological disorders and stroke and provides a stipend of $4000. You will be trained by a team of mentors that includes both basic scientists and clinicians. This program is for undergraduates planning to pursue a biomedically focused graduate research program, or a medical scientist (M.D., Ph.D.). Students will also shadow clinicians 1-2 times and engage in a simulation activity.
