FUN Travel Award Call For Applications
Since 1992 the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience has provided travel awards to help our top undergraduate neuroscientists present their original research at the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. The winners are enrolled at a variety of academic institutions - from small liberal arts colleges to large research intensive universities. What ties them together is a dedication to the pursuit of high quality research in the neurosciences. FUN has kept in contact with our winners and an amazing 68 percent of them have gone on to enter PhD or MD/PhD programs. These students are truly our next generation of neuroscientists.
Our awards are sponsored by FUN member dues and generous contributions from our sponsors: The Grass Foundation, Sinauer Associates, Kinder Scientific, ADInstruments, Data Sciences International (DSI), Noldus, ThorLabs, Campden Instruments, Coulbourn Instruments, Med Associates, Fine Science Tools, Wellesley College, Nu Rho Psi, Leica Microsystems, SimBiotic Software, Brandeis University, Macalester Cognitive Neurosciences, and MicroBrightField
Any dues-paying members of the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) can sponsor nominees for a FUN Undergraduate Student Travel Award. The link for the online application and instructions are found here. The 2016 deadline for application submission is Friday, May 20th.
