Paid Undergraduate Neuroscience Research Fellowships for Summer 2021

Man and Woman looking into microscopes.

The Neuroscience Program and the Center for Structural & Functional Neuroscience (CSFN) are excited to announce that they are once again sponsoring a paid summer fellowship program for undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience.  Students have the opportunity to spend 10-12 weeks during the summer working in the laboratory group of a UM neuroscientist.  In addition to laboratory experience, the program also includes a seminar series to expand student’s knowledge base in the neurosciences and enhance scientific communication skills. 

Beyond projects in Cellular & Molecular and Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience, the CSFN is also interested in sponsoring student projects that focus on the intersection of neuroscience with the Humanities, Arts & Education fields.  These projects may include a non-neuroscience UM faculty mentor and be designed as either an independent or collaborative effort with other CSFN faculty.  A number of the summer undergraduate research fellowships will be funded through support generously provided by the W.M. Keck Foundation as part of the UM project: Neuroscience: a novel perspective for the campus-wide integration of STEM, Liberal Arts, and Education curricula.

Students need to identify a project mentor and get their endorsement before submitting an application. A list of potential mentors can be found on the Neuroscience Program Faculty page.   More information and application material can be found on the CSFN’s Outreach pages.
