Atlanta's Neuroscience Education & Training (NET/work) Program provides a two-year research assistantship for sophomore/second-year undergraduates from under-represented demographic groups at Agnes Scott, Emory, Georgia State, and Spelman. The program begins with a summer in BRAIN (10-week, full-time, mentored research at Emory or Georgia State) and continues through the junior academic year with a part-time assistantship, followed by a second summer away doing research at a partner institution (15 partners nationwide), and culminating with the senior year back in the home lab (Emory or Georgia State).
NET/work is funded by an R25 in the BP-ENDURE Program at NIH. Students can check eligibility, preview the online application, and request application login through the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience website: http://www.cbn-atl.org/education/NETwork.shtml.
The application deadline has recently been extended to MARCH 8, 2013.
