Each summer, CNUP hosts undergraduates for a 10-week program to conduct independent research with a University of Pittsburgh neuroscience faculty of their choice. The research will be conducted in a laboratory setting and students will gain technical knowledge of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, molecular biology, brain imaging, computer simulations, neuropsychology, and behavioral assessments.
Applicants must have completed their sophomore or junior years at a college or university in the U.S. They must be enrolled full-time and hold a 3.0 GPA or higher in the areas of science or math. International student applicants must provide to CNUP an official authorization for Optional Practical Training (OPT) from their institution.
10-week program at the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh. Fellows are provided a $3,500 stipend, housing in a campus dormitory, and a monthly bus pass.
