Summer Student Fellowship Opportunity - Deadline: March 20, 2016
IES Brain Research Foundation
The Irene and Eric Simon (IES) Brain Research Foundation has been giving out summer fellowships in neuroscience research to bright, motivated students since 2005. This allows selected undergraduate and first year graduate or medical students to spend the summer receiving research training in outstanding Neuroscience laboratories in the USA. The goal is to encourage their interest in Neuroscience research in hopes that many of them will embark on career paths that involve brain research. Ideally, these bright young scientists will carry on the work of the current senior scientists, to find cures for serious brain disorders.
As of the summer 2015, we have given out 73 summer fellowships to very bright students, who did summer research in excellent laboratories all over the country. Many have expressed excitement about their experience and have decided or firmed up their decision to pursue a career in Neuroscience research. Some have been co-authors on important papers and many are going or planning to go for their PhD or MD/PhD in neuroscience.
