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 $3,000 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 $1,500 (mentors receive $500).
The Summer 2019 program runs from June 3 through July 26. Applications were accepted from December 17, 2018, through February 4, 2019. Students were notified of acceptances by March 4, 2019.
