This eight-week summer program enables undergraduates to jumpstart their Graduation with Distinction senior theses by working one-on-one with faculty mentors. The full program is open only to rising juniors and seniors who are declared Neuroscience majors.
Students work on individual projects with their mentors to gather more information for research independent study (RIS) projects that will be done throughout the fall and spring semesters. Full-time participants receive a $3,500 stipend. Mentors receive $1,000 toward their discretionary fund. Part-time participation is also an option; students may elect to take one summer school course during term I or II and receive a stipend of $1,750 (mentors receive $500).
In Summer 2023, the program will run from June 5 through July 28. Applications are now open and will be due on February 3. Acceptance notifications will be sent by March 1.
