Diversity Travel Fellowship Program

The Graduate Program for Neuroscience (GPN) has established the Diversity Travel Fellowship Program for prospective GPN students that provides funding for their visit to Boston where they will tour our University and attend our Spring Admissions Reception.

GPN recognizes that diversity and inclusiveness is an essential component of our educational mission and we are actively seeking to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in our student body. The broad range of neuroscience research at BU is coordinated through a unified community of investigators from multiple research groups of our Charles River and MED campuses. The strength of our synergy lies in our diversity as a community. GPN is committed to the training of young neuroscientists who will contribute their own unique perspective to generating the major scientific questions that will be central to the future of modern neuroscience.

If you are planning to apply to Ph.D. programs in neuroscience or computational neuroscience, our next Admissions Reception will be held in the Spring of 2020. We provide your transportation, lodging and other related costs, as well as a waiver for the PhD application fee. Applications for the Diversity Travel Fellowship Program are due by March 7th.
