Outside BU Research and Credit Opportunity

Many universities and other programs outside the Boston University Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience offer exciting opportunities to gain research experience as an undergraduate or to study neuroscience for credit during the summer. A frequently updated list of such programs can be found here and now includes Summer 2012 opportunities.

Also, please find funding support for travel offered by BU’s UROP program here:  http://www.bu.edu/urop/files/2009/08/urop-travel-application.pdf
