Description:
STARTneuro is a competitive program that trains, mentors, and funds diverse transfer students as they enter neuroscience research. Our program begins with a 10-week summer research training program to ramp students up on key neuroscience techniques and facilitates lab placements with faculty mentors during the school year. STARTneuro also provides ongoing mentorship and workshops to prepare students to apply for PhD programs.

STARTneuro will pay students a research assistant rate for 40 hours a week over the 10-week summer program ($6,000). Once you find a lab, we can support students at the same rate for up to 15 hours/week ($2,250/quarter).
