The Washington University in St. Louis Neuroscience Pipeline program prepares undergraduates from diverse backgrounds for neuroscience PhD programs. We combine outstanding research training, a rigorous neuroscience curriculum and an empowering support system that allows participants to thrive on their path to graduate school and beyond. With support from the NIH BP-ENDURE Program and Washington University, accepted students are funded for up to two 10-week summers and trips to the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. Overall, the Pipeline program embeds students in a network of neuroscientists and enhances trainee success.

Curriculum: Each component of the WUSTL ENDURE program is designed to provide trainees a solid foundation for future success. This begins with full-time hypothesis-driven research in a lab matching the participant's interests. Outside of the lab, our intensive curriculum focuses on neuroscience knowledge, scientific communication and graduate school preparation. Offerings Include mock fellowship writing classes, a week-long course on neuroscience fundamentals, and graduate admissions workshops and mock Interviews. The program also includes an online workshop series and support to attend and present at the Society for Neuroscience meeting to sustain and strengthen skills during the academic year. In conjunction with personalized advising and an empowering community, the Pipeline offers outstanding, holistic training budding neuroscientists will use for years to come.

Benefits: In addition to conducting independent research with outstanding faculty, Pipeline scholars receive up to two summers of support, which includes a $5000 stipend per summer, travel funds to and from the program, university housing, and a public transportation pass for travel throughout St. Louis. Participants also have access to GRE/MCAT prep courses, and funds to attend up to two scientific conferences annually.p>Eligibility: Students are strong candidates for the Pipeline if they are: interested in research and pursuing a PhD or MD/PhD in a neuroscience-related field, enrolled full-time in a baccalaureate degree program, a US citizen or permanent resident, and are from an underrepresented group (e.g. racial and ethnic minorities, students with disabilities, individuals from low income areas and first-generation college students). All years of undergraduates are welcome to apply and previous research experience is not required.
