BHRI Undergraduate Fellows Program
The Brain Health Research Institute Undergraduate Fellows Program offers highly qualified and motivated undergraduate students an immersive program that includes research-intensive experiences in neuroscience as well as mentoring, skills training and career development support. The culmination of the Fellows' experience is a capstone presentation of their research.
In order to be eligible for a BHRI Undergraduate Fellowship, the following criteria should be considered:
The faculty mentor must be a BHRI member and student will be expected to join BHRI as a student member. Membership is free. More information is available on the BHRI Members webpage.
The BHRI Undergraduate Research Fellowship takes places during the same weeks as the SURE experience and student will participate in both programs. This Fellowship program consists of weekly one-hour meetings to discuss research topics related to responsible conduct of research, scientific rigor & reproducibility, and communication skills. These meetings are in addition to the meetings organized by the SURE program, but do not overlap programmatically. The BHRI Undergraduate Fellow is expected to attend these weekly, in-person meetings and present their research in an in-person capstone presentation at the end of the program.
Full-time participation (40 hours/week) is preferred; however, part-time participation (20 hours/week) may be considered.
