The Integrative Neuroscience Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) is offering five $3000 summer scholarships for undergraduate students to work in a faculty mentor’s lab on an independent neuroscience research project. Tuition for a 3-credit independent research course is included. This opportunity is intended to support students in labs not currently funded by the COBRE grant. The nature of the funding necessitates a very short application period. Application deadline: May 8, 5pm.
If you have a promising undergraduate working in your lab, please invite him or her to apply for this opportunity. Scholarship announcement and application are attached.
This program provides 5 undergraduate students each with a $3000 scholarship to work on an independent neuroscience research project and tuition for a 3-credit independent research course. Students are required to make a substantial commitment to the project, approximately equivalent to three-quarters time, over at least 10 weeks. Recipients will participate in the summer undergraduate research program offered through the Office of Undergraduate and Interdisciplinary Research which includes:
• an opening ceremony including a program orientation and required laboratory safety class
• series of seminars and workshops focused on assisting students planning to pursuing research careers
• poster session at the end of the summer at which all UNR summer undergraduate researcher scholars will present their work.

The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates who have research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, with graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research. The Registry is open to students and graduate schools in the fields of Anthropology/Archaeology, Arts/Humanities, Biology/Biochemistry, Business, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Economics, Education, Engineering, English and Linguistics, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Health Professions, History, Journalism and Communications, Mathematics/Computer Science, Physics/ Astronomy, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work and Sociology.
Any undergraduate may go to http://www.cur.org/projects_and_services/registry/student_register/ to fill out a simple curriculum vitae form. There is no charge to the student and records will be made available to bona fide Graduate Schools or research programs that contract with CUR for this service. Organizations or companies seeking the students’ information for other marketing purposes will not be granted access. Graduate School representatives may contact students to invite applications or visits to the campus and laboratory, or to share information about their research programs and financial support opportunities.
Graduate schools may provide a link to their websites, and may provide a short description of opportunities, such as research fields and fellowships. It will also be possible for institutions to place an ad on the database website if the content is related to the mission of CUR and the Undergraduate Registry.
For graduate schools that wish to review the student information, there is an access fee of $1,500 for the entire database, or $300 for one specific discipline. Again, there is no cost to you as a student to create a profile.
We hope that students who are currently in their junior year will register now, but anyone with undergraduate research experience may register at any time. You will be able to update your listing as appropriate, to include any summer research experience or information about Senior Theses and test scores. We also welcome submissions by students who are engaged in Masters’ Degree programs now but who plan on going on to a PhD program. Just fill out the information as if you are an undergraduate on the form including the date you intend to enter a PhD program and your date of completion of your undergraduate degree. Upload a link to your CV that contains complete information about your MS/MA degree activity (school, subject, thesis topic (if applicable), and advisor).
CUR believes that this service will be a great benefit for both students and graduate schools by narrowing the search for the right match. So if you are interested in graduate school, please take a moment to register now. Be sure to include a statement of your research interests, as this will be important for making the match.
Please feel free to contact me, should you have any questions.
