About the Award
Are you passionate about neuroscience? Are you ready to spend this summer and/or up-to 2 years in a lab generating new knowledge?
UCLA Life Sciences Dean Tracy Johnson offers a program to fund outstanding undergraduate Neuroscience IDP (uNSIDP) majors interested in research experience, who will be in their 3rd or 4th years in Fall 2023. This scholarship and research award program is funded through the generous gift of the estate of Professor Arnold Scheibel, who was a long-term faculty member of the NSIDP.
Students can apply for one of the following:
- a summer 2023 research fellowship of $5,000
- a one-year research fellowship at $10,500 for the academic year
starting in the fall of 2023 and ending in the spring of 2024
- a summer 2023 research fellowship of $5,000 and a one-year research fellowship at $10,500 for the academic year starting in the fall of 2023 and ending in the spring of 2024
For options (b & c), students with financial needs (regardless of whether they qualify for financial aid) can apply for an additional scholarship of up to $7,500 to help cover tuition and fees. Included in the academic year awards are funds designated for presenting research findings at a TBD conference. All eligible students (uNSIDP majors in their 3rd or 4th year interested in gaining hands-on research experience) are strongly encouraged to apply. Importantly, having a current lab placement is not a requirement for application, as a suitable lab will be identified for you if needed. Past awardees are encouraged to apply for the second year of funding. Awards will be based on merit, interest in gaining neuroscience research experience, and impact on career development. Please be advised that students may not hold two research awards at one time, so students currently being funded through programs such as MARC or I 2 URP are not eligible.
