Fellowship Application & Instructions

The IES Brain Research Foundation Summer Fellowships are for outstanding, bright, motivated undergraduate and first year graduate or medical students, who are in the process of deciding if neuroscience research might be part of their career plans.  The fellowships provide the opportunity to work with & be trained by an established, experienced scientist in the field of brain research. 
     Applicants must arrange training with and be accepted by an outstanding, experienced faculty sponsor, who is the head of a first-rate neuroscience laboratory at: a university, medical school or research institute in the U.S.A. Contact outstanding, accomplished neuroscientists that you have read about, learned about, and/or met, and who you would love to work with.  Ask if he/she would train you should you be selected.  
     IES Brain Research Foundation Summer Fellows will receive an award of $2500 and are expected to spend 8-10 weeks (full time) being trained during the summer.  Four neatly collated packets, including copies of everything requested of you and your faculty sponsor must be mailed in one package, and postmarked by March 20th, to be considered by the scientific committee.

The IES Brain Research Foundation Scientific Committee will select the applicants who will receive a fellowship and the selected applicants will be notified by April 30th.
