Watch the Funding for Graduate Education Webinar
Sep 28, 2015
Financial support for graduate education is harder to come by, especially as institutional and research funds decrease. However, graduate education is extremely important for the neuroscience field. SfN recognizes this and has created the “Funding for Graduate Education: Finding Success with Traditional Funding Sources and Exploring New Models” webinar to increase awareness and inform viewers about ways to increase financial support for these programs. This webinar will focus on traditional models (such as individual and institutional training grants) and new sources of graduate funding like societies, philanthropy, and industry.
Webinar speakers are Ellen Walker, professor of pharmaceutical sciences at Temple University; Ania Majewska, director of the neuroscience graduate program at the University of Rochester; Alison Hall, acting director of the training, workforce development, and diversity division at the National Institute of General Medical Sciences; and Ludise Malkova, associate professor of pharmacology at Georgetown University. Speakers will discuss different funding options as well as tips for succeeding in the different models.
