Note: We’re a graduate student organization that serves undergraduates, so there’s no membership requirements for undergraduates to attend our events. During Fall quarter, we concentrate largely on holding events regarding graduate school applications. During the Winter/Spring quarters, we hold workshops on some essential neuroscience graduate school skills, such as programming and statistics, as well as how to apply to funding opportunities like summer undergraduate research programs. While we’re on Facebook, the best way to stay up to date regarding our events is through twitter, where we post undergraduate opportunities around the nation on an almost daily basis. We also offer 1-on-1 mentorship matching, however we give high priority to students that fall under the NIH’s guidelines for “Underrepresented Populations in the U.S. Biomedical, Clinical, Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Enterprise”, which you can find here. If you believe you qualify, send us an e-mail and we will notify our mentors!
