The Neuroscience Program Support Fund provides unrestricted funds for the Neuroscience Program. Unrestricted funds are used to handle costs that other funding may not cover. Unrestricted funds provide a pool of available resources that can easily be directed to where they are needed most. This includes things such as student and faculty support, research support, and research aid.
Annual awards to students for things such as Outstanding Research Contribution and Outstanding Contributions to the Program are provided by this fund. These are an important means by which the program encourages our students' outstanding work.
Events such as the Graduate Student Appreciation Night are also funded through the Program Support Fund allowing the unit to provide an opportunity for building student unity and showing appreciation from the Program.
