Student Eligibility

Faculty members must nominate students who intend to pursue future training and careers in research at the Ph.D. level. Eligible students should have completed their sophomore or junior years at Tulane. Tulane graduates who have been accepted to the thesis track of Tulane’s 4+1 program also may apply to the program in order to begin their Master’s thesis project during the summer before formal matriculation.

If you have been nominated, you will receive an application form from your P.I.. Please complete the form and send it to Peter Bowling via email (pbowling [at]

Program Benefits

Students accepted to the program will receive stipends of $3,000 (stipend does not include room, board or travel expenses; students are responsible for these arrangements).

Program Features

The 2015 program runs from June 1 to July 31. Students will participate in weekly meetings during which 2-3 students will give 15 minute presentations on their summer research.  The program will culminate in a final poster session in which each student creates a poster based on their research.  All Neuroscience faculty members, graduate students and the public are welcome to attend the poster session.
