The Division of Science wishes to announce that, in 2013, we will again offer up to ten Division of Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships for Brandeis students doing undergraduate research. These fellowships are funded by generous alumni donations.
The due date for applications is February 15, 2013
Division of Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships will provide $5000 in stipend support to allow students to do summer research (housing support is not included). Students who will be rising Brandeis sophomores, juniors, or seniors in Summer 2013 (classes of ’14, ’15, and ’16), who in addition are working in a lab in the Division of Science at the time of application, are eligible to apply. A commitment from a Brandeis faculty member to serve as your mentor in Summer 2013 is required.
The Division of Science Summer Program will run from May 29 – Aug 2, 2013. Recipients are expected to be available to do full time laboratory research during that period, and must commit to presenting a poster at the final poster session on Aug 1, 2013.
Other programs available in 2013 will include the two NSF-funded REU programs sponsored by the MRSEC and the Program in Cell and Molecular Visualization. The REU programs are primarily aimed at students visiting for the summer from other institutions. There are also Traineeships for Undergraduates in Computational Neuroscience through a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The computational neuroscience traineeships run through the summer and continue into the academic year.
