The Founders of Neuroscience Fellowship Fund is a new fund set up to create an endowment that will provide for an annual fellowship for a Neuroscience Program student. This fund honors and acknowledges the hardwork of the many founders of our Program who laid the groundwork from the Neural and Behavioral Biology Program to the present day Program.
According to a recent survey done by the Society for Neuroscience, one of the greatest barriers to graduate schools expanding their neuroscience programs is access to funding. It is the hope, through the creation of this fund to be able to continue to bring in and expand the Program by providing a fellowship. This fellowship is granted by the Program Coordinator and the Executive Director.
