Please note that admittance to the Neuroscience Training Program is highly selective. Approximately half of the Program’s funding is earmarked for U.S. citizens, but the other slots can support international students.
International students should make every effort to apply for grants and fellowships in their home country if they are interested in training with the NTP.
In addition to the standard admissions process, in some cases the Neuroscience Training Program allows faculty trainers to sponsor a student for admission into the program. The admissions committee is responsible for all final admissions decisions and will consider these applicants along with the entire applicant pool for a given admission year. Faculty sponsored students will be required to participate in several lab rotations during their first year. It is expected that the sponsor will host one of the rotations and the student’s likely course will be to join the sponsor’s lab after their rotations. However, the student will be able to join the lab of their choice upon completion of rotations.
In addition to the $75 non-refundable application fee, a $6.00 international document processing fee will also be charged. Both fees will be processed during the submission of your application.
