Description

The Student Summer Fellowship Program is for Bright, Motivated Students who are undergraduate juniors or seniors, or first year graduate or medical students and are considering a career in neuroscience. We expect this summer experience to be educational, enjoyable and rewarding. We anticipate that many of the fellows will find the field of brain research exciting and hope that they will continue to include it in their career plans.

If you are chosen as a Foundation Fellow, you will be expected to:

1) Receive research training and perform research full time for 8-10 weeks with your mentor in a US lab. Your mentor will be working closely with you and will be available for questions and guidance

2) Submit a written report of your research & experiences. The report will be 2-4 pages long and summarize your research accomplishments, what you have learned, as well how this experience has impacted your career plans.

3) Say a few words (1-2 minutes) at an event about your research experience and how it may affect your career plans. A written script of this, with photos of you and your faculty sponsor in the lab and/or office should also be submitted.

4) Acknowledge the Foundation as a source of funding in publications arising from the summer research.

5) Your faculty sponsor will also be expected to say a few words (1-2 minutes) at an event about this program and your work together, also submitting a written script (on letterhead),
**If either the student or faculty sponsor cannot attend the gala dinner, he/she needs to let us know & send us a written statement and short video message (1-2 minutes)
