By supporting students in behavioral neuroscience, you contribute directly to building critical skills and experiences that last a lifetime.
With the support from donors like you, we are working to exceed last year’s accomplishment of raising $12,000 to support student scholarships and undergraduate research opportunities that are essential in preparing students for post graduate employment and graduate school. Starting at 12:00 am on May 30th, a percentage of donations will receive valuable matching funds from the University. That is why the students and faculty of the BNS program will once again “Stay Up For Student Research” on the eve of May 30th (May 29th) 2019 to fundraise for:
Paid research opportunities
Travel to local and national scientific meetings
Support for Invited Speakers and Symposiums
"This year I was able to attend the Society for Neuroscience conference and help present a poster, which was an amazing experience! I've also been able to spend time in the lab learning new techniques, as well as take the three new BNS courses, which were wonderful classes. In addition I'm about to start the Neurodiagnostic internship, which I am very excited for."
"The Behavioral Neuroscience Program provided me an immense amount of educational opportunities. In particular, it permitted my studies of reward, addiction/craving, and relapse in Dr. Grimm's laboratory, and allowed me to share recent research with fellow neuroscientists at the 2018 Society for Neuroscience conference in San Diego. I am sincerely grateful for the scholarship donors, professors, and student colleagues who continue to inspire my success as I plan to graduate and pursue a research career upon my graduation this spring."
