The Center for Neurologic Study's Research Fellowship Program offers support to recent university graduates interested in a career in medicine or neuroscience. Students must have demonstrated success in their undergraduate studies and are interested in conducting research primarily focused on neurodegenerative diseases. The Center's Director, Dr. Richard Smith, and other members of the Center's staff provide mentorship along with the investigator with whom the fellowship recipient is collaborating.
The fellowship program will sponsor a student's laboratory research for one year following their graduation. Research must be conducted in collaboration with an investigator at a university or research institute. Under some circumstances, the Center's support will be extended for a second year.
Applicants are invited to submit an overview of their proposed research. If selected for a fellowship, the award amount will be negotiated with the collaborating institution.
