Undergraduate Grant

A summer research studentship opportunity for NeuroCAM studies at partnering universities.

Overview

Our Undergraduate Grant is a summer research studentship opportunity for NeuroCAM studies at partnering Universities. Students selected for funding will be awarded a $7000 salary for the May-August period, with the student’s academic supervisor contributing 40% of the salary value (i.e. $2800).

Thanks to a generous donor, the academic supervisor contribution is waived for students applying from the University of Toronto.
