Undergraduate Research Fellowship

The Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture invites undergraduates to apply for our interdisciplinary research fellowship. This fellowship provides undergraduate researchers with intellectual and professional development opportunities through participation in the vibrant, interdisciplinary intellectual community of the Center.  CMBC Undergraduate Fellows will:

  • Participate in regularly scheduled Research Fellow discussion meetings
  • Enjoy special access to CMBC events and visiting scholars
  • Be eligible to attend CMBC graduate seminars
  • Interact with CMBC graduate certificate students and core faculty
  • Be eligible to request up to $500 in funding for interdisciplinary research and/or conference participation

Students apply in the spring semester of their junior year for award in the senior year. The fellowship is yearlong, beginning at the start of the fall semester and will run through commencement. Priority will be given to students conducting research (literature or data-based; e.g. honors projects, research partners, and independent studies) in an area relevant to mind, brain, or culture.

Students awarded the CMBC undergraduate fellowship will be invited to attend MBC 600 (research seminar/discussion group) and may attend MBC 501 if offered during their senior year.  Students will be invited to attend regular discussion meetings to build community among CMBC student fellows.
