Undergraduate Brain Awareness Travel Award
SfN and the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) cosponsor a travel award to honor an outstanding undergraduate student active in neuroscience education and outreach. The award includes complimentary registration to the SfN annual meeting and a $750 stipend to offset travel expenses.
Applications are evaluated on:
- The importance, quality, and originality of the Brain Awareness work.
- The student’s contribution to the Brain Awareness project.
- The candidate’s potential as a scientist or a science educator.
How to Apply
Interested applicants should visit the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) award website to apply.
The student should be an author on a Theme J poster to be presented at Neuroscience 2018. The abstract and poster should present the results from a Brain Awareness project done while the candidate was an undergraduate.
- Qualifying neuroscience education and/or outreach work may have occurred at any time during the year, not necessarily during Brain Awareness Week.
- Students who have graduated are eligible if the Brain Awareness project was done during their undergraduate years.
All applications must be sponsored by a dues-paying member of the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience.
